The Equilibrium State in the MagneticBinary Problem when the More Massive Primary is an Oblate Spheroid
Abstract
The author's aim is to study in this paper the stationary state of the planar MagneticBinary problem by taking into consideration the oblateness of the more massive primary, and then to investigate the stability of motion about the equilibrium points by means of the characteristic polynomial of the linearised variational equations.
