We present a computer assisted proof of the full listing of central configurations for spatial n-body problem for $$n=5$$ and 6, with equal masses. For each central configuration, we give a full list of its Euclidean symmetries. For all masses sufficiently close to the equal masses case, we give an exact count of configurations in the planar case for $$n=4,5,6,7$$ and in the spatial case for $$n=4,5,6$$ . 
Central configurations on the plane with $N$ heavy and $k$ light bodies
We study the problem of planar central configurations with N heavy bodies and k bodies with arbitrary small masses. We derive the equation which describe the limit of light masses going to zero,
Filaments and voids in planar central configurations
We have numerically computed planar central configurations of n = 1000 bodies of equal masses. A classification of central configurations is proposed based on the numerical value of the complexity,

Central configurations in planar $N$-body problem for $N=5,6,7$ with equal masses
We give a computer assisted proof of the full listing of central configuration for n-body problem for Newtonian potential on the plane for n = 5, 6, 7 with equal masses. We show all these central
On the spatial central configurations of the 5--body problem andtheir bifurcations
Central configurations provide special solutions of the general $n$--body problem. Using the mutual distances between the $n$ bodies as coordinates we study the bifurcations of the spatial central
Central configurations of the 5-body problem with equal masses in three-dimensional space
We enumerate central configurations with axial symmetry in the 5-body problem with equal masses in three-dimensional space. It is thus shown, that only two of these configurations, have a unique
Central configurations of the five-body problem with equal masses
In this paper we present a complete classification of the isolated central configurations of the five-body problem with equal masses. This is accomplished by using the polyhedral homotopy method to
Central Configurations of the 5-Body Problem with Equal Masses in Three-Space
Central configurations with axial symmetry in the 5-body problem with equal masses in three-space are enumerated. It is shown that only two of the configurations have a unique symmetry axis. Symbolic
Symmetry Theorems for the Newtonian 4- and 5-body Problems with Equal Masses
TLDR
A more general statement of the algebraic part of a symmetry theorem for the central configurations of the newtonian spatial 5-body problem with equal masses is proved, valid for a class of potentials defined by functions with increasing and concave derivatives.
Relative equilibrium solutions in the four body problem
Beyond the casen=3 little was known about relative equilibrium solutions of then-body problem up to recent years. Palmore's work provides in the general case much useful information. In the casen=4
Finiteness of spatial central configurations in the five-body problem
We strengthen a generic finiteness result due to Moeckel by showing that the number of spatial central configurations of the Newtonian five-body problem with positive masses is finite, apart from
Generic Finiteness for Dziobek Configurations
The goal of this paper is to show that for almost all choices of n masses, mi, there are only finitely many central configurations of the Newtonian n-body problem for which the bodies span a space of
