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