Circular Restricted 3-Body Problem (CR3BP)
Includes the computation of Lagrange points
lagrange_points(r12, m1, m2)¶
Computes the Lagrangian points of CR3BP.
Computes the Lagrangian points of CR3BP given the distance between two bodies and their masses. It uses the formulation found in Eq. (2.204) of Curtis, Howard. ‘Orbital mechanics for engineering students’. Elsevier, 3rd Edition.
lagrange_points_vec(m1, r1, m2, r2, n)¶
Computes the five Lagrange points in the CR3BP.
Returns the positions in the same frame of reference as r1 and r2 for the five Lagrangian points.
Position of the Lagrange points: [L1, L2, L3, L4, L5] The positions are of type ~astropy.units.Quantity
- Return type
