Abstract / Description:The most likely sources of gravitational radiation that may be seen by the large-scale laser-interferometric detectors that will soon be built around the world are reviewed. The prospects for detection are excellent, and much information can be extracted. But the coalescences of compact objects pose a problem: the two-body problem in relativity is not well enough understood to allow one to extract the most information from a detection. There is a challenge to relativists to find solutions that will be useful to gravitational wave detectors.
