Families of periodic orbits continued in regularizing coordinates

André Deprit, Julian Palmore

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A predictor-corrector algorithm is proposed for continuing analytically families of periodic orbits beyond collision trajectories in the restricted problem of three bodies. It is based on Hill's equation for normal variations in Thiele's regularizing coordinates.
