Global Dynamics of the Logarithmic Galactic Potential by Means of Frequency Map Analysis
By means of Laskar’s frequency map analysis, we derive a global vision of the dynamics of the 2 degrees of freedom logarithmic galactic potential, for various values of the perturbation parameter. Some preliminary results on the exploration of the 3 degrees of freedom logarithmic system are also given.
