Combined effects of perturbations, radiation and oblateness on the periodic orbits in the restricted three-body problem

This paper investigates the periodic orbits around the triangular equilibrium points for 0<μ<μ c , where μ c is the critical mass value, under the combined influence of small perturbations in the Coriolis and the centrifugal forces respectively, together with the effects of oblateness and radiation pressures of the primaries. It is found that the perturbing forces affect the period, orientation and the eccentricities of the long and short periodic orbits.
