On the accuracy of restricted three-body models for the Trojan motion

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this note we compare the frequencies of the motion of the Trojan asteroids in the Restricted Three-Body Problem (RTBP), the Elliptic Restricted Three-Body Problem (ERTBP) and the Outer Solar System (OSS) model. The RTBP and ERTBP are well-known academic models for the motion of these asteroids, and the OSS is the standard model used for realistic simulations.
    Our results are based on a systematic frequency analysis of the motion of these asteroids. The main conclusion is that both the RTBP and ERTBP are not very accurate models for the long-term dynamics, although the level of accuracy strongly depends on the selected asteroid.
