Quasi periodic coorbital motions (joint work with Philippe Robutel and Alexandre Pousse)
Abstract: The motions of the satellites Janus and Epimetheus around
Saturn are among the most intriguing in the solar system since they
exchange their orbits every four years.
We give a rigorous proof of the existence of quasi-periodic orbits of this
kind in the three body planetary problem thanks to KAM theory.No Notes/Supplements Uploaded No Video Files Uploaded
