Symmetric Four-mass Schubart-like Systems

  • Winston L. Sweatman (a1)

Abstract

The general four-body problem can be simplified by considering the special case where the system contains two pairs of identical masses and is symmetrical. The simple models that occur may aid our understanding of the general problem. Systems that arise from Schubart-like interplay orbits are an important feature of the dynamics.
