Abstract
We consider a simulated population of galactic neutron stars. The rotational frequency of each neutron star evolves through a combination of electromagnetic and gravitational wave emission. The magnetic field strength determines the dipolar emission, and the ellipticity (a measure of a neutron star's deformation) determines the gravitational wave emission. We find the gravitational wave amplitude emitted by each star in the population and probe the areas of magnetic field strength and ellipticity parameter space that would result in a detection by Advanced LIGO. We show that in the absence of a detection, for fixed ellipticity, we can set lower bounds on the magnetic fields of young neutron stars.
