Now I can plot them on a graph:

ListPlot[{list1,list2},Joined -> True]


Now the question is:

I would like to move the yellow line in such a way that it resembles as much as possible the blue line. I don't want to distort the line, just move it in x-y direction or rotate it.

In the end I would like to have a program that automatically figures out the best x and y mouvement and best rotation about a point (the program should also find that point and the angle) such that the the yellow line fits as good as possible above the blue line.

How can I do that ?
