In this paper we address a $n+1$-body gravitational problem governed by the Newton's laws, where $n$ primary bodies orbit on a plane $\Pi$ and an additional massless particle moves on the perpendicular line to $\Pi$ passing through the center of mass of the primary bodies. We find a condition for that the configuration described be possible. In the case that the primaries are in a rigid motion we classify all the motions of the massless particle. We study the situation when the massless…

The Characterization of the Variational Minimizers for Spatial Restricted $N+1$-Body Problems

We use Jacobi's necessary condition for the variational minimizer to study the periodic solution for spatial restricted -body problems with a zero mass on the vertical axis of the plane for equal

On the classification of pyramidal central configurations

We present some results associated with the existence of central configurations (c.c.'s) in the classical gravitational N-body problem of Newton. We call a central configuration of five bodies, four

On the existence of collisionless equivariant minimizers for the classical n-body problem

We show that the minimization of the Lagrangian action functional on suitable classes of symmetric loops yields collisionless periodic orbits of the n-body problem, provided that some simple

The stability of vertical motion in the N-body circular Sitnikov problem

We present results about the stability of vertical motion and its bifurcations into families of 3-dimensional (3D) periodic orbits in the Sitnikov restricted N-body problem. In particular, we

According to the number of bodies the authors prove the existence (or nonexistence) of a finite (or infinite) number of symmetric families of periodic solutions.

Periodic orbits and bifurcations in the Sitnikov four-body problem when all primaries are oblate

We study the motions of an infinitesimal mass in the Sitnikov four-body problem in which three equal oblate spheroids (called primaries) symmetrical in all respect, are placed at the vertices of an

Nonplanar periodic solutions for spatial restricted 3-body and 4-body problems

In this paper, by using variational methods, we study the existence of nonplanar periodic solutions for the following spatial restricted 3-body and 4-body problems: for N=2 or 3$N=2 \mbox{ or } 3$, N

PYRAMIDAL CENTRAL CONFIGURATIONS AND PERVERSE SOLUTIONS

For n-body problems, a central configuration (CC) plays an im- portant role. In this paper, we establish the relation between the spatial pyramidal central configuration (PCC) and the planar central

Four-Body Central Configurations¶with some Equal Masses

Abstract We prove firstly that any convex non-collinear central configuration of the planar 4-body problem with equal opposite masses β >α > 0, such that the diagonal corresponding to the mass α is

Periodic orbits and bifurcations in the Sitnikov four-body problem

We study the existence, linear stability and bifurcations of what we call the Sitnikov family of straight line periodic orbits in the case of the restricted four-body problem, where the three equal
