Figure 1:
Schematic configuration of three freely falling masses as a detector of gravitational waves. The masses are labelled , , and , their positions with respect to the origin of the coordinate system are given by vectors . The Euclidean separations between the masses are denoted by , where the index corresponds to the opposite mass. The unit vectors point between pairs of masses, with the orientation indicated. |
