Research for Space Flight Dynamics in Vicinity of Earth-Moon L2 Libration Point
Applied Mathematics and Information Science
Present research deals with dynamics of space flight in the vicinity of lunar L2 libration point. The general purpose of this work is to analyze set of bounded orbits, to develope method for classification of orbits and divide them into classes. The techniques employed could be applied in addition to other libration points in other systems. The algorithm for periodic orbits search was implemented and applied. New long-termperiodic orbits were detected and investigated. From the analysis of correlation between orbit's characteristics nonexistence of orbit's class with small Z amplitude and great Y amplitude was revealed. The achieved results will simplify future mission planning and add some fundamental knowledge about space flight dynamics.
