My work focuses on the Elliptic Restricted Three body problem and the coordinate systems used within this restrictive problem. It focuses on the pulsating coordinates and the sidereal coordinates and comes to the conclusion that pulsating coordinates are more appropriate for the Poincare case and when the infinitesimal third particle is close to the libration points. Comparatively, sidereal coordinates are more appropriate for the lunar case and comet case, where the system can be considered a perturbed Kepler Problem.
