In this book the problem of station keeping is studied for orbits near libration points in the solar system. The main focus is on orbits near halo ones in the (Earth+Moon)–Sun system. Taking as starting point the restricted three-body problem, the motion in the full solar system is considered as a perturbation of this simplified model. All the... more...

It is well known that the restricted three-body problem has triangular equilibrium points. These points are linearly stable for values of the mass parameter, μ , below Routh's critical value, μ 1 . It is also known that in the spatial case they are nonlinearly stable, not for all the initial conditions in a neighborhood of the equilibrium... more...
