  • A long-term numerical integration of the classical Newtonian approximation to the planetary orbital motions of the full solar system (Sun + eight planets), spanning 20 Gyr, was performed. The results showed no severe instability arising over this time interval. Subsequently, utilizing a bifurcation method described by Jacques Laskar, two numerical experiments were performed with the goal of determining dynamically allowed evolutions for the solar system in which the planetary orbits become… CONTINUE READING
