Abstract

This thesis concerns the analysis of continuous gravitational waves from neutron stars with non-axisymmetric rotational motion using data from ground-based interferometric gravitational wave detectors, the development of a computationally efficient algorithm for analysis of this data and the use of this algorithm in follow up searches, which were previously too computationally expensive to consider.
