Assume a constellations of satellites flighting close a given nominal trajectory around L4 or L5 in the Earth-Moon system in such a way that there is freedom in the selection of the geometry of the constellation. We are interested in to avoid large variations of the mutual distance between the spacecrafts. In this case, the possible existence of regions of zero relative radial acceleration with respect to the nominal trajectory will prevent from the expansion or contraction of the constellation. The goal of this paper is the study of theses regions.
