Quasiperiodic Collision Solutions in the Spatial Isosceles Three-Body Problem with Rotating Axis of Symmetry
We consider the spatial isosceles Newtonian three-body problem, with one particle on a fixed plane, and the other two particles (with equal masses) located symmetrically with respect to this plane. Using variational methods, we find a one-parameter family of collision solutions for this system. All these solutions are periodic in a rotating frame.
