We present the result of a search for coincidences among the triggers found in the analysis of three 2-day-long stretches of data from the EXPLORER bar detector. The data were searched for nearly periodic gravitational waves from rapidly rotating neutron stars in our Galaxy. In this paper we propose a numerical procedure to search for coincidences and we present a theoretical formula for the expected number of coincidences. Our numerical analysis revealed no double and consequently no triple coincidences among the triggers from the three data sets. The results are in agreement with the expected number of coincidences that we estimate by our theoretical formula.

Abstract

We present the result of a search for coincidences among the triggers found in the analysis of three 2-day-long stretches of data from the EXPLORER bar detector. The data were searched for nearly periodic gravitational waves from rapidly rotating neutron stars in our Galaxy. In this paper we propose a numerical procedure to search for coincidences and we present a theoretical formula for the expected number of coincidences. Our numerical analysis revealed no double and consequently no triple coincidences among the triggers from the three data sets. The results are in agreement with the expected number of coincidences that we estimate by our theoretical formula.
