Previous burst searches with ground-based interferometers
have generally been limited to frequencies below 2 kilohertz. However, various models predict gravitational wave emission in the few-kilohertz range from gravitational
collapse, neutron star modes, the mergers of some compact binaries or other astrophysical phenomena. We present all-sky gravitational wave burst searches at frequencies up to 6 kilohertz, conducted on data taken during LIGO’s fifth science run and Virgo’s first science run.
