Periodic Orbits of a Collinear Restricted Three-Body Problem

Abstract

In this paper we study symmetric periodic orbits of a collinear restricted three-body problem, when the middle mass is the largest one. These symmetric periodic orbits are obtained from analytic continuation of symmetric periodic orbits of two collinear two-body problems.
