On the period of the periodic orbits of the restricted three body problem

On the period of the periodic orbits of the restricted three body problem We will show that the period T of a closed orbit of the planar circular restricted three body problem (viewed on rotating coordinates) depends on the region it encloses. Roughly speaking, we show that, $$2 T=k\pi +\int _\Omega g$$ 2 T = k π + ∫ Ω g where k is an integer, $$\Omega $$ Ω is the region enclosed by the periodic orbit and $$g:{\mathbb {R}}^2\rightarrow {\mathbb {R}}$$ g : R 2 → R is a function that only depends on the constant C known as the Jacobian constant; it does not depend on $$\Omega $$ Ω . This theorem has a Keplerian flavor in the sense that it relates the period with the space “swept” by the orbit. As an application we prove that there is a neighborhood around $$L_4$$ L 4 such that every periodic solution contained in this neighborhood must move clockwise. The same result holds true for $$L_5$$ L 5 . http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Celestial Mechanics and Dynamical Astronomy Springer Journals
