Equilibria of the symmetric collinear restricted four-body problem with radiation pressure
- 141 Downloads
In this paper, a restricted four-body problem with radiation pressure is considered. The three primaries are supposed in a collinear central configuration where both masses and both radiation forces of peripheral bodies are equal. After an adequate formulation, the problem is reduced to a tri-parametric one. A complete analysis of the position of equilibria and their stability in the space of parameters is performed.
