Abstract

In the framework of the axisymmetric problem of restricted five bodies, the existence and stability of the libration points, the regions of possible motion are illustrated and analyzed numerically, under the effect of small perturbations in the Coriolis and centrifugal forces. It is explored how the parameters influence substantially the positions of the libration points and the possible regions of motion. In an attempt to understand how the parameters involved due to the small perturbations in the Coriolis and centrifugal forces affect the stability of the libration points, we perform a systematic investigation and reveal that some of the collinear and non-collinear libration points are stable under these perturbations, whereas none of these libration points are stable for any combination of the angle parameters when the effects of these forces are neglected.
