Main noise source for LISA is signal!

Time series depends on many source parameters
Can estimate parameter resolution using Fisher Information Matrix (Cutler, Hellings & Moore, Vecchio, Seto, Hughes)
Many parameters highly correlated (Cutler) Many sources that interfere (Cornish & Crowder)
Coming soon: The LISA Calculator (Java web tool)
Can we identify optical counterparts to LISA sources?
Monochromatic Binaries. Fixed SNR=10
Z=1, Final Year
z=1, Final Year

Many science drivers will shape future detectors. In almost every case improved angular resolution and electromagnetic counterparts will be very valuable.
Amazing things are possible for large sums of money
