GENERALIZED FORMS OF THE JACOBI EQUATION FOR STELLAR SYSTEMS
Abstract:An application of the Jacobi equation to the dynamics of gravitating systems is considered. Generalized forms of the Jacobi equation for open stellar systems and for systems with physical collisions of stars are obtained. Some consequences of the derived equations are given.
