Of the three collinear libration points of the Sun–Earth Circular Restricted Three-Body Problem (CR3BP), L3 is that located opposite to the Earth with respect to the Sun and approximately at the same heliocentric distance. Whereas several space missions have been launched to the other two collinear equilibrium points, i.e., L1 and L2, taking advantage of their dynamical and geometrical characteristics, the region around L3 is so far unexploited. This is essentially due to the severe… 
A family of linear stable equilibria in the Sun-Earth-Sail problem
The collinear libration point of the Sun-Earth Circular Restricted Three-Body Problem (CR3BP), L 3 $L_{3}$ is located opposite to the Earth with respect to the Sun. Whereas several space missions
Short-period effects of the planetary perturbations on the Sun–Earth Lagrangian point L3
Context. The Lagrangian point L3 of the Sun–Earth system, and its Lyapunov orbits, have been proposed to perform station-keeping, although L3 is only rigorously defined for the extremely simplified
Spacecraft motion around artificial equilibrium points
The main goal of this paper is to describe the motion of a spacecraft around an artificial equilibrium point in the circular restricted three-body problem. The spacecraft is under the gravitational
Optimal low-thrust transfers between libration point orbits
Over the past three decades, ballistic and impulsive trajectories between libration point orbits (LPOs) in the Sun–Earth–Moon system have been investigated to a large extent. It is known that

Single-impulse and low-thrust low-energy transfers from a Lyapunov orbit around $$L_2$$L2 point of the Sun–Earth system to the periodic orbits around the equilibrium points $$L_i\;
Families of Earth–Moon trajectories with applications to transfers towards Sun–Earth libration point orbits
We studied Earth–Moon transfer trajectories in the circular restricted three-body problem (CRTBP) from the viewpoint of families and considered their applications in transferring a spacecraft from

The main new technical result in this paper is the numerical demonstration of the existence of a heteroclinic connection between pairs of periodic orbits: one around the libration point L(1) and the other around L(2), with the two periodic orbits having the same energy.
