The Motion of a Particle from the L2 Lagrangian Point: Elliptic Cases
Abstract
We calculate the orbit of an infinitesimal particle starting from the L2 Lagrangian point when the binary orbit is elliptic. Asymptotic or quasiasymptotic osculating elements of the third particle are given in tables. Key words: Contact binary; Mass loss.
