restricted three-body problem پراسهی ِ سهجسم ِ فروداریده parâse-ye seh jesm-e forudâridé
*Fr.: problème restreint à trois corps*
A special case of the → *three-body problem* in which the
→ *mass* of one of the bodies is negligible compared to that of
the two others. If the relative motion of the two massive components is a circle,
the situation is referred to as the
→ *circular restricted three-body problem*.
An example would be a space probe moving in the
→ *gravitational field*s of the → *Earth*
and the → *Moon*,
which revolve very nearly in circles about their common
→ *center of mass*. → *restrict*; → *three*;
→ *body*; → *problem*. |
