The dynamics, stability and manifestation of circumbinary orbits

Abstract:

I numerically investigate the dynamics of orbits in 3D circumbinary phase-space as a function of binary eccentricity and mass fraction. I find that inclined circumbinary orbits in the elliptically-restricted three-body problem display a nodal libration mechanism in the longitude of the ascending node and in the inclination to the plane of the binary. I analyse and quantify the behaviour of these orbits and investigate their stability over time. This work is the first dynamically aware anal...
