Out-of-plane equilibria in the symmetric collinear restricted four-body problem with radiation pressure

Original Article

Abstract

In this paper, a three dimensional case of the restricted four-body problem with radiation pressure is considered. The three primaries are supposed to be in a collinear central configuration where both masses and both radiation forces of peripheral bodies are equal. In addition to the analysis of the equilibria in the planar problem introduced in a previous paper by the authors, we present here a complete study of position and stability of the equilibrium points out of \(\mathit{Oxy}\) plane.
