Abstract

The three-body problem is Sir Isaac Newton’s problem. It is not only an academic problem, but a serious problem, affecting the whole existence of mankind. Nobody before Newton had thought of it, but as soon as it dawned on Newton, he started to work on it feverishly, even though it gave him a head ache (Fig. 2.1).
