Spatial rotations of a satellite in the circular three-body problem in the case of a main resonance.
Spatial rotations of a satellite about the mass centre in the circular three-body problem in the case of a main resonance are considered. Following assumptions are made: (a) the ellipsoid of inertia of the satellite is close to a sphere, (b) the orbital motion of the satellite is described by quasi-periodic functions of time. A topological classification of possible loops in spatial orbits is proposed. Plane orbits of the satellite are shown to correspond to a certain degeneration.
