  • A note on the dynamics around the L1,2 Lagrange points of the Earth-Moon system in a complete solar system model 

    Tang, Guojian; Gomez Muntaner, Gerard; Masdemont Soler, Josep; Yijun, L. (2012)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The purpose of this paper is the study of the phase space around the collinear libration points L1 and L2 of the Earth–Moon system when the gravitational effects of the remaining bodies of the Solar System are taken into ...
  • Capturing small asteroids into Sun-Earth Lagrangian points for mining purposes 

    Lladó, Neus; Ren, Yuan; Masdemont Soler, Josep; Gomez Muntaner, Gerard (2012)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The aim of this paper is to study the capture of small Near Earth Objects (NEOs) into the Sun-Earth L2 using low-thrust propulsion for mining or science purposes. As it is well known, the vicinity of these points is inside ...
  • On the cucker-smale flocking model applied to a formation moving in a central force field around the Earth 

    Paita, Fabrizio; Gomez Muntaner, Gerard; Masdemont Soler, Josep (2013)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The Cucker – Smale (CS) flocking model is an interacting particles control system where every particle adjusts its dynamics according to a weighted average between its velocity and those of the other elements of the ...
  • Two mechanisms of natural transport in the Solar System 

    Ren, Yuan; Gomez Muntaner, Gerard; Masdemont Soler, Josep; Fantino, Elena (2011)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper, two natural transport mechanisms in Solar System are considered. The first is a short-time transport, and is based on the existence of ‘‘pseudo-heteroclinic’’ connections between libration point orbits of ...
