Abstract

New families of simple, double and triple periodic symmetric retrograde orbits in various ring configurations are presented in this paper, providing new information on the dynamic behavior of such many-body systems. The evolution of the characteristic curves and of their orbits-members is discussed as well as their most prominent qualitative aspects.
