Abstract
Direct and unequivocal detection of gravitational waves represents a great challenge of contemporary physics and astrophysics. A worldwide effort is currently operating towards this direction, building ever sensitive detectors, improving the modelling of gravitational wave sources and employing ever more sophisticated and powerful data analysis techniques. In this paper we review the current status of LIGO and Virgo ground based interferometric detectors and some data analysis tools used in the continuous wave searches to extract the faint gravitational signals from the interferometric noise data. Moreover we discuss also relevant results from recent continuous wave searches.
