Abstract:The zero-velocity surfaces in the three-dimensional ring problem of N + 1 bodies and their parametric evolution is the subject of this paper. These surfaces, which are also known as Hill's or Jacobian surfaces, provide us with valuable information concerning the regions of the permissible particle motion and the existence of equilibrium positions.
