New families of simple, double and triple periodic symmetric retrograde orbits in various ring configurations are presented in this paper, providing new information on the dynamic behavior of such many-body systems. The evolution of the characteristic curves and of their orbits-members is discussed as well as their most prominent qualitative aspects. 
Periodic motions of a small body in the Newtonian field of a regular polygonal configuration of ν+1 bodies
Abstract We study the simple periodic orbits of a particle that is subject to the gravitational action of the much bigger primary bodies which form a regular polygonal configuration of (ν+1) bodies
Impact of the Mass Parameter on Particle Dynamics in a Ring Configuration of N Bodies
Parameters play a very important and determinative role in the dynamics of a dynamical system as well as in the formation of its particular characteristics. In this paper we investigate the way in
Particle motions in Maxwell’s ring dynamical systems
The focus of this contribution is an effort to review and report the main results obtained so far, concerning the periodic motions of a small body in the combined gravitational field created by a
Regions of a satellite’s motion in a Maxwell’s ring system of N bodies
The study of a dynamical system comprises a variety of processes, each one of which requires careful analysis. A fundamental preliminary step is to detect and limit the regions where solutions may
Radiation Effect on a Particle’s Periodic Orbits in a Regular Polygon Configuration of N Bodies
The photo-gravitational problems of two or more bodies have attracted much attention during the last decades. In this paper, radiation is considered as an additional factor influencing the particle
Linear stability of ring systems with generalized central forces
We analyze the linear stability of a system of n equal mass points uniformly distributed on a circle and moving about a single massive body placed at its center. We assume that the central body makes
The Ring Problem of (N+ 1) Bodies: An Overview
The study of N-body systems and their simulation with various models always excited the scientific interest. Here we present an N-body model that has been under investigation in the last 10 years and


Periodic Solutions in the Ring Problem
In this article we investigate the symmetric periodic motions of a particle of negligible mass in a coplanar N-body system consisting of ν=N-1 peripheral equidistant bodies of equal masses and a
The effect of radiation pressure on the particle dynamics in ring-type N-body configurations
The paper deals with a simple photo-gravitational model of N+1 bodies. The motion of a small particle which subjects both the gravitational attraction and the radiation pressure is studied in a

A Planar Case of the n + 1 Body Problem: the 'Ring’ Problem
Our intention in this article is to present a new model for the investigation of the motion of a particle of negligible mass in a multibody surrounding. The proposed general planar configuration
Zero-velocity surfaces in the three-dimensional ring problem of N + 1 bodies
The zero-velocity surfaces in the three-dimensional ring problem of N + 1 bodies and their parametric evolution is the subject of this paper. These surfaces, which are also known as Hill's or
We study the motion of an infinitesimal mass point under the gravitational action of three mass points of masses μ, 1–2μ and μ moving under Newton's gravitational law in circular periodic orbits
