THE INFLUENCE LAPLACIAN CRITICAL ANGLE OVER A MOTION LIKE THE THREE FIRST GALILEAN SATELLITES OF JUPITER

Roberto Artur Cornetti SILVA[1]

§    ABSTRACT: The influence of the variables associated with the Laplacian critical angle is taken into account in the model developed by Silva (1986) and improved by Silva (1991). The basic ideas from Hori’s method (1966), Sessin & Ferraz-Mello (1984), Sessin (1983) can be now applied in order to construct an intermediate solution for a motion like the three first Galilean Satellites of Jupiter.

§    KEYWORDS: Laplacian Ressonance; Galilean Satellites of Jupiter.
