  • Contributions to Libration Orbit Mission Design using Hyperbolic Invariant Manifolds 

    Canalias Vila, Elisabet (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2007-07-24)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    Aquesta tesi doctoral està emmarcada en el camp de l'astrodinàmica. Presenta solucions a problemes identificats en el disseny de missions que utilitzen òrbites entorn dels punts de libració, fent servir la teoria de sistemes ...
  • Homoclinic and heteroclinic transfer trajectories between Lyapunov orbits in the Sun-Earth and Earth-Moon systems 

    Canalias Vila, Elisabet; Masdemont Soler, Josep (2004)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this paper a method for finding homoclinic and heteroclinic connections between Lyapunov orbits using invariant manifolds in a given energy surface of the planar restricted circular three body problem is developed. Moreover, ...
  • Impulsive transfers between lissajous libration point orbits 

    Canalias Vila, Elisabet; Cobos Lucas, Jordi; Masdemont Soler, Josep (2003)
    Article
    Open Access
    A complete methodology for the transfer between two Lissajous orbits around the same collinear equilibrium point is developed making use of the geometry of the phase space around these points. The result of the study ...
  • The scattering map in the planar restricted three body problem 

    Canalias Vila, Elisabet; Delshams Valdés, Amadeu; Masdemont Soler, Josep; Roldán González, Pablo (2005)
    Article
    Open Access
    We study homoclinic transport to Lyapunov orbits around a collinear libration point in the planar restricted three body problem. A method to compute homoclinic orbits is first described. Then we introduce the scattering ...
