Using Continuous GWs from Known Pulsars to Measure Gravitational Wave Speed

Other Versions:
We will look into the measurement and bounding of the speed of continuous
gravitational waves by comparing variances observed in long-term signals using
the motion of the detector relative to the source. We can use Doppler effects in
the phasing of these waves to get an estimate for their speed, even in the absence
of electromagnetic counterparts. However, in order to measure this speed, we
will use a known EM signal and measure its continuous wave partner.
