Correlation between the first 71 (over 343) parameters estimated during the fit of the planetary ephemerides. The red frame frames the correlations related to the initial conditions of planet orbits and the blue rectangle frames the correlations related to the Sun J2 (JS), the PPN parameters β (BE) and γ (GA) and the gravitational mass of the Sun (GS). The magenta rectangle frames the correlations related to the gravitational masses of the first most perturbing asteroids including the gravitational mass of the asteroid ring (GR). m1,...m6 expresses the initial conditions of the Mercury orbit in equinoctial coordinates: semi-major axis, mean motion, k, h, q, and p respectively. The other planet initial conditions are indicated by the first letter of the planet (V for Venus, M for Mars etc...) and by the figures of the corresponding initial conditions as given for Mercury.
