Schematic configuration of three freely falling masses as a detector of gravitational waves. The masses are labelled 1, 2, and 3, their positions with respect to the origin O of the coordinate system are given by vectors xa (a = 1,2,3). The Euclidean separations between the masses are denoted by La, where the index a corresponds to the opposite mass. The unit vectors na point between pairs of masses, with the orientation indicated.
