We consider the motion of the Parabolic restricted three body problem (PRTBP). The goal of this problem is to study the motion of a massless body attracted, under the Newton’s law of gravitation, by two masses moving in parabolic orbits all over in the same plane. The PRTBP may be regarded as a simplified model for the motion of two galaxies, taken as the primaries, and an infinitessimal mass. In order to discuss possible motions for the particle, first we consider a rotating and pulsating fra...
