A world-wide effort is now underway to build gravitational wave detectors based on highly-sensitive laser interferometers. When data from detectors at different sites is properly combined, it will permit highly-sensitive searches for a stochastic background of relic gravitational radiation. These lectures (from the Les Houches School in October 1995) review the current status of this program, and discuss the methods by which data from different detectors can be used to make measurements of, or place limits on, a stochastic background. They also review possible cosmological sources and their potential detectability.
