##### Abstract

We extend a coherent network data-analysis strategy developed earlier for detecting Newtonian waveforms to the case of post-Newtonian (PN) waveforms. Since the PN waveform depends on the individual masses of the inspiralling binary, the parameter-space dimension increases by one from that of the Newtonian case. We obtain the number of templates and estimate the computational costs for PN waveforms: for a lower mass limit of I M,,, for LIGO-I noise and with 3% maximum mismatch, the online computational speed requirement for single detector is a few Gflops; for a two-detector network it is hundreds of Gflops and for a three-detector network it is tens of Tflops. Apart from idealistic networks, we obtain results for realistic networks comprising of LIGO and VIRGO. Finally, we compare costs incurred in a coincidence detection strategy with those incurred in the coherent strategy detailed above
