    Abstract

    This is an Erratum for the article 2008 ApJ 683 L45 A processing error in the signal template used in this search led to upper limits about 30% lower than we now know is warranted by the early S5 data. We have re-analyzed that data and find new upper limits on the strain parameter h(0) of 4.9 x 10(-25)/3.9 x 10(-25) for uniform/restricted prior assumptions concerning the Crab inclination and polarization angles. These results have now been superseded by upper limits of 2.6 x 10(-25)/2.0 x 10(-25) based on the full S5 data and presented in Abbott et al. (2009). The multitemplate search was not affected by the error.
