On the Evolution of Families of Periodic Orbits Approaching a Small Primary
Abstract
A network of families of periodic orbits is obtained approximately for the case mu = 0.1 of the restricted problem using a direct grid search. Only such orbits of the third body are considered that cross the synodical line of the primaries 'outside' the smaller of the two, perpendicularly, and in the direction of rotation of the system.
