Abstract:The two triangular libration points of the real Earth-Moon system are not equilibrium points anymore. Under the assumption that the motion of the Moon is quasi-periodic, one special quasi-periodic orbit exists as dynamical substitute for each point. The way to compute the dynamical substitute was discussed before, and a planar approximation was obtained. In this paper, the problem is revisited. The three-dimensional approximation of the dynamical substitute is obtained in a different way. The linearized central flow around it is described.
