We present an implementation of the F-statistic to carry out the first search in data from the Virgo laser interferometric gravitational wave detector for periodic gravitational waves from a priori unknown, isolated rotating neutron stars. We searched a frequency f0 range from 100 Hz to 1 kHz and the frequency dependent spindown f1 range from -1.6(f0/100 Hz) ×10-9 Hz s?1 to zero. A large part of this frequencyspindown space was unexplored by any of the all-sky searches published so far. Our...[Show more]
