Detection of scalar gravitational waves

In this talk I review recent progress in the detection of scalar gravitational waves. Furthermore, in the framework of the Jordan-Brans-Dicke theory, I compute the signal-to-noise ratio for a resonant mass detector of spherical shape and for binary sources and collapsing stars. Finally, I compare these results with those obtained from laser interferometers and from Einsteinian gravity.
