Abstract

Supermassive black hole binary inspirals are among the most important sources for the future LISA gravitational wave observatory. The scattering of stars and/or the effects of an ambient gaseous accretion disk can lead to a significant initial eccentricity. Taking into account the eccentricity in the waveform improves the parameter estimation accuracy for these sources, as shown using a Fisher matrix analysis.
