Equilibrium Connections on the Triple Collision Manifold
In the three body problem the triple collision manifold plays a fundamental role to describe passages near triple collision. To study the possible transitions from the approach to collision to the escape from it, the invariant submanifolds on that manifold are essential. In this paper we study mainly the connections between the equilateral approaches and escapes.
