Abstract

The Markov chain Monte Carlo methods offer practical procedures for detecting signals characterized by a large number of parameters and under conditions of low signal-to-noise ratio. We present a Metropolis-Hastings algorithm capable of inferring the spin and orientation parameters of a neutron star from its periodic gravitational wave signature seen by laser interferometric detectors.
