  • Abstract The discovery of the chaotic behavior of the planetary orbits in the Solar System [Laskar, J., 1989. Nature 338, 237–238; Laskar, J., 1990. Icarus 88, 266–291] was obtained using numerical integration of averaged equations. In [Laskar, J., 1994. Astron. Astrophys. 287, L9–L12], these same equations are integrated over several Gyr and show the evidence of very large possible increase of the eccentricity of Mercury through chaotic diffusion. On the other hand, in the direct numerical… CONTINUE READING
