Families of symmetric-periodic orbits in the elliptic three-dimensional restricted three-body problem

  • E. Sarris


With an orbit of the three-dimensional circular problem as a starting point, we have calculated families of symmetric-periodic orbits in the three-dimensional elliptic problem with a variation of the mass ratio μ and the eccentricitye. Afterwards, we have studied their evolution and stability.
