The three-body problem

Author: M J Valtonen; Hannu Karttunen
Publisher: Cambridge, UK ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 2005.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
"How do three celestial bodies move under their mutual gravitational attraction? It is a problem that has been studied by Isaac Newton and leading mathematicians over the last two centuries. Poincare's conclusion that the problem represents an example of chaos in nature, opens new possibilities of dealing with it: a statistical approach. For the first time such methods are presented in a systematic way. The book  Read more...
