[1107.2872] Optimizing the Earth-LISA "rendez-vous"

Authors: Fabrizio De Marchi, Giuseppe Pucacco, Massimo Bassan

Abstract: We present a general survey of heliocentric LISA orbits, hoping it might help in the exercise of rescoping the mission. We try to semi-analytically optimize the orbital parameters in order to minimize the disturbances coming from the Earth-LISA interaction. In a set of numerical simulations we include nonautonomous perturbations and provide an estimate of Doppler shift and breathing as a function of the trailing angle.
