Abstract / Description:We study parameter estimation of supermassive black holes in the range 105–108Modot by LISA using the inspiral full post-Newtonian gravitational waveforms, and we compare the results with those arising from the commonly used restricted post-Newtonian approximation. The analysis shows that for observations of the last year before merger, the inclusion of the higher harmonics clearly improves the parameter estimation. We pay special attention to the source location errors and study the improvement on the percentage of sources for which we could potentially identify electromagnetic counterparts. We also show how the additional harmonics can help to mitigate the impact of losing laser links during the mission.
