We explore the possibility that extrasolar planets might be found in the 1:1 mean-motion resonance, in which a pair of planets share a time-averaged orbital period. There are a variety of stable co-orbital configurations, and we specifically examine three different versions of the 1:1 resonance. In the first configuration, the two planets and the star… CONTINUE READING
