Abstract: The detection problem for gravitational wave signals from inspiralling binaries is studied. It is shown that such a signal can be approximated from below by relevant step-functions. This observation paves the way to applying our detection method, which is based on the concepts of detection operator, detection statement and quote-function. Some sucient conditions of detectability are given in terms of the wave signal parameters. The results are numerically con- rmed by computer simulation based on a certain slight modication of the procedure (MatLab) of calculating
