Gravitational-Wave Background > s.a. background; gravitational-wave detection [including astrometric effects].
* Approach: For many sources, where the signal cannot be modeled like for single ones, the approach to the search of gravitational-wave signals is based on looking for cross-correlations between different detectors; Eventually one would like to produce a map similar to the cmb anisotropy maps.

Specific Types of Sources and Related Effects > s.a. gravitational-wave sources and propagation; wave phenomena.
* Compact binaries: For low masses, the best chances are by searching for the inspiral signal; For masses above 100 MSun, looking for the ringdown signal is more effective; For single binary sources, the approach to the search of gravitational-wave signals is based on matched filtering, in which segments of data are correlated with templates corresponding to different sets of binary system parameters..
