Description

Isolated neutron stars are potentially excellent emitters of gravitational waves throughout many stages of their lives. I will review recent advances in our understanding of gravitational wave emission mechanisms from both young and old neutron stars. I will also discuss ongoing efforts to detect these gravitational waves with Advanced LIGO.
