The problem to search for possible correlation between the Gamma Ray Bursts of still unknown origin and data recorded with the Gravitational Wave detectors is studied. A new algorithm for this search based on the Kolmogoroff comparison of distributions is given, which is not affected by the presence of non-gaussian noise.

Key words: gravitational waves – methods: data analysis – gamma rays: bursts
