Abstract/Media

By using the variational method, we show the existence of various kinds of solutions in the planar Sitnikov problem. For a given symbolic sequence, we show the existence of orbit realizing it. We also prove the existence of  periodic orbits and of connecting (heteroclinic) orbits between them.
