The standard IGEC approach to detection of gravitational waves with many detectors is a simple time coincidence search. We discuss the problems of false alarm and false dismissal assessment, in the case of both stationary and non-stationary noise. The significance of any cumulative excess of found coincidences over the background is determined by maximum likelihood methods.
