  • Coorbital periodic orbits in the three body problem 

    Cors Iglesias, Josep Maria; Hall, G.R. (2003-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    We consider the dynamics of coorbital motion of two small moons about a large planet which have nearly circular orbits with almost equal radii. These moons avoid collision because they switch orbits during each close ...
  • Numerical exploration of the limit ring problem 

    Barrabés Vera, Esther; Cors Iglesias, Josep Maria; Hall, G.R. (2013-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    The aim of this work is to provide an insight of an idealized model of a planetary ring. The model is a limit case of the planar circular restricted 1 + n body problem, where an infinitesimal particle moves under the ...
  • Uniqueness results for co-circular central configurations for power-law potentials 

    Cors Iglesias, Josep Maria; Hall, G.R.; Roberts, Gareth E. (2014-05-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    For a class of potential functions including those used for the planar n-body and n-vortex problems, we investigate co-circular central configurations whose center of mass coincides with the center of the circle containing ...
