The parameters of inspiralling compact binaries can be estimated using matched filtering of gravitational-waveform templates against the output of laser-interferometric gravitational-wave detectors. Using a recently calculated formula, accurate to second post-Newtonian (2PN) order [order (v/c)^4, where v is the orbital velocity], for the frequency sweep (dF/dt) induced by gravitational radiation damping, we study the statistical errors in the determination of such source parameters as thedoi:10.1103/physrevd.52.848 pmid:10019304 fatcat:doa3baoojfc4njsni33t6iy3uq
