On the Manev spatial isosceles three-body problem
- 22 Downloads
We study the isosceles three-body problem with Manev interaction. Using a McGehee-type technique, we blow up the triple collision singularity into an invariant manifold, called the collision manifold, pasted into the phase space for all energy levels. We find that orbits tending to/ejecting from total collision are present for a large set of angular momenta. We also discover that as the angular momentum is increased, the collision manifold changes its topology.
