Read the abstract View Share Reference managersThe aim of this work is to provide an insight of an idealized model of a planetary ring. The model is a limit case of the planar circular restricted 1 + n body problem, where an infinitesimal particle moves under the gravitational influence of a large central body and n smaller bodies located on the vertices of a regular ngon. When considering n tending to infinity, a model depending on one parameter is obtained. We study the main important structures of the problem depending on this parameter (equilibria, Hill¿s regions, linear stability, ¿). We use Poincaré maps, for different values of the parameter, in order to predict the width of the ring and the richness of the dynamics that occur is discussed. This work is a continuation of the work presented in Barrabés by (SIAM J Appl Dyn Syst 9:634¿658, 2010).

Read the abstract View Share Reference managersHip{hop solutions of the equal{mass 2 N {body problem are periodic solutions in which the bodies lie on the vertices of a regular antiprism for all time. A regular antiprism is a polyhedron formed by two congruent regular N {gons lying on parallel planes and such that the orthogonal projection on each other is a regular 2 N {gon. In [1] and [2] it was shown that there exist families of Hip{hop solutions in the neighbourhood of planar regular 2 N {gon relative equilibria solution and of planar highly eccentric elliptic homographic solutions, the planes containing each group of bodies performing small oscillations along the line joining the centres of the N {gons. Consider now two regular N {gons, with masses equal within each group, lying on two planes perpendicular to the line joining their centres. It is easily seen that, if the initial velocities within each group are invariant under a 2 =N rotation around that line, then the bodies remain on such a conguration for all time, provided no collision occurs. A periodic solution of this type with the same mean angular velocity for each group will be called a Generalized Hip{Hop solution of the ( N + N ){body problem. We show the existence of Generalized Hip{Hop solutions in the case of almost equal mass. These solutions are close to the planar regular 2 N {gon relative equi libria solutions with small vertical oscillations described above.

Read the abstract View Share Reference managersFor a class of potential functions including the planar n body and n vortex problems, we investigate cocircular central configurations whose center of mass coincides with the center of the circle containing the bodies. New equations are derived that completely describe the problem. Using a topological approach, it is shown that for any choice of positive masses (or circulations), if such a central configuration exists, then it is unique. For the planar n vortex problem, it is shown that the only possible solution is the regular n gon.

Using mutual distances as coordinates, we show that the set of fourbody cocircular central configurations with positive masses is a twodimensional surface, a graph over two of the exterior sidelengths. Two symmetric families, the kite and isosceles trapezoid, are investigated extensively. We also prove that a cocircular central configuration requires a specific ordering of the masses and find explicit bounds on the mutual distances. In contrast to the general fourbody case, we show that if any two masses of a fourbody cocircular central configuration are equal, then the configuration has a line of symmetry.

We study the planar central configurations of this problem when the remaining masses are infinitesimal. We obtain two diferent classes of central configurations depending on the mutual distances between the infinitesimal masses. Both classes exhibit symmetric and nonsymmetric configurations. And when two infinitesimal masses are equal, with the help of extended precision arithmetics, we provide evidence that the number of central configurations varies from five to seven.

Read the abstract View Share Reference managersWe study congurations with one massive central mass, M , and several innitesimal co{orbital satellites (in our case, 3 satellites) describing the same circular orbit around M . A conguration that allows relative equilibria (in a rotation frame the satellites remain xed) and homographic motions (the conguration of the satellites change it size, but keep the shape) is called central conguration. We obtain two dierent classes of central congurations depending on the mutual distances between the innitesimal masses. Both classes exhibit symmetric and non{symmetric congurations. In the case when two innitesimal masses are equal we provide evidence that the number of central congurations varies from ve to seven.

By introducing a parameter ¿, the homographic motion and the small amplitude oscillations can be uncoupled into a purely Keplerian homographic motion of fixed period and a vertical oscillation described by a Hill type equation. Small changes in the eccentricity induce large variations in the period of the perpendicular oscillation and give rise, via a Bolzano argument, to resonant periodic solutions of the uncoupled system in a rotating frame. For small ¿ ¿ 0, the topological transversality persists and Brouwer's fixed point theorem shows the existence of this kind of solutions in the full system.

Read the abstract View Share Reference managersWe consider a restricted threebody problem consisting of two positive equal masses m 1 = m 2 moving, under the mutual gravitational attraction, in a collision orbit and a third infinitesimal mass m 3 moving in the plane P perpendicular to the line joining m 1 and m 2. The plane P is assumed to pass through the center of mass of m 1 and m 2. Since the motion of m 1 and m 2 is not affected by m 3, from the symmetry of the configuration it is clear that m 3 remains in the plane P and the three masses are at the vertices of an isosceles triangle for all time. The restricted planar isosceles threebody problem describes the motion of m 3 when its angular momentum is different from zero and the motion of m 1 and m 2 is not periodic. Our main result is the characterization of the global flow of this problem.

Read the abstract View Share Reference managersWe study the dynamics of an idealized model of a planetary ring. We start with the n + 1 ring problem in a rotating coordinate system where an infinitesimal mass is attracted by n small masses m located in a regular n gon around a central mass m 0 . Assuming the mass ratio m 0 /m of order n 3 , we construct a limiting problem as n tends to infinity. This limit process is similar to Hill ´s problem. The central mass is pushed towards the infinity while the distances between two consecutive ring bodies is kept equal 1. We study the dynamics of the problem including equilibria, periodic orbits and stability.

Read the abstract View Share Reference managersIn this paper, we prove the existence of special type of motions in the restricted planar parabolic threebody problem, of the type exchange, emission¿capture, and emission¿escape with close passages to collinear and equilateral triangle configuration, among others. The proof is based on a gradientlike property of the Jacobian function when equations of motion are written in a rotatingpulsating reference frame, and the extended phase space is compactified in the time direction. Thus a phase space diffeomorphic to [p/2, p/2] × Cµ1,µ2 × C coordinates (¿, ¿, ¿') is obtained with the boundary manifolds ¿ = ±p/2 corresponding to escapes of the binaries when time tends to±8. It is shown there exists exactly five critical points on each boundary, corresponding to classic homographic solutions. The connections of the invariant manifolds associated to the collinear configurations, and stable/unstable sets associated to binary collision on the boundary manifolds, are obtained for arbitrary masses of the primaries. For equal masses extra connections are obtained, which include equilateral configurations. Based on the gradientlike property, a geometric criterion for capture is proposed and is compared with a criterion introduced by Merman (1953b) in the fifties, and an example studied numerically by Kocina (1954).

Read the abstract View Share Reference managersWe consider a nonautonomous system of ordinary differential equations. Assume that the time dependence is periodic with a very high frequency 1/¿, where ¿ is a small parameter and differentiability with respect to the parameter is lost when ¿ equals zero. We derive from Arenstorf's implicit function theorem a set of conditions to show the existence of periodic solutions. These conditions look formally like the standard analytic continuation method, namely, checking that a certain minor does not vanish. We apply this result to show the existence of a new class of periodic orbits of very large radii in the threedimensional elliptic restricted threebody problem for arbitrary values of the masses of the primaries.

We discuss the relationship required among the small quantities (radial separation, mass, and minimum angular separation) that admits coorbital motion like that observed for the moons of Saturn, Janus and Epimetheus. Persistence of the orbits is also given.

In this context, the existence of families of symmetric solutions can be proved using analytic continuation.

We consider a third mass point, of mass m 3=0, moving on the straight line L perpendicular to the plane of motion of the first two mass points and passing through their center of mass. Since m 3=0, the motion of m 1 and m 2 is not affected by the third and from the symmetry of the motion it is clear that m 3 will remain on the line L. The parabolic restricted threebody problem describes the motion of m 3. Our main result is the characterization of the global flow of this problem.

Read the abstract View Share Reference managersTwo attracting bodies m 1,m 2 move in parabolic orbits and a third massless body mo = 0 moves in the plane under the attraction of the primaries. We obtain the equations of motion of the massless particle in a rotatingpulsating coordinate system where the primaries remain fixed. Introducing an appropriate time scaling we obtain two invariant subsystems corresponding to final evolutions as time goes to±8. We show that the set of initial conditions leading to parabolic escape of the infinitesimal mass is the union of invariant manifolds of dimension 3 and 4 and tend asymptotically to a central configuration. We also give a new criterion based in the Jacobi function analogous to the circular case, to guarantee elliptic capture. This criterion seems to be distinct from criteria introduced by Merman [1954] for the hyperbolic and parabolic restricted problems. We review Kocina¿s example of exchange where the infinitesimal mass mo comes from infinity forming a bounded binary with m2 and escapes forming a bounded binary with m 1, and obtain new classes of orbits of symmetric exchange.

Read the abstract View Share Reference managersWe have two mass points of equal masses moving under Newton's law of gravitational attraction in a collision hyperbolic orbit while their centre of mass is at rest. We consider a third mass point, of mass , moving on the straight line L perpendicular to the line of motion of the first two mass points and passing through their centre of mass. Since , the motion of the masses and is not affected by the third mass and from the symmetry of the motion it is clear that will remain on the line L. The hyperbolic collision rectricted threebody problem consists in describing the motion of . Our main result is the characterization of the global flow of this problem.
