Stability of triangular points in the generalised photogravitational restricted three-body problem with variable mass

J Singh


The stability of triangular points under the influence of radiation pressure of the bigger primary, oblateness of the smaller primary and variation in mass of the third infinitesimal body has been investigated. It is found that these points are stable for 0 < μ < μc, and unstable for μc < μ < ½ . It is also seen that the range of stability decreases due to radiation pressure, oblateness and variation in mass of the respective body.
