    • Abstract


      In this paper we establish a relation between direct radiations (generally called radiation factor) and reflected radiations (albedo) to show their effects on the existence and stability of non-collinear libration points in the elliptic restricted three-body problem taking into account the oblateness of smaller primary. It isdiscussed briefly when $\alpha = 0$ and $\sigma = 0$, the non-collinear libration points form an isosceles triangle with the primaries and as e increases the libration points $L_{4,5}$ move vertically downward ($\alpha$, $\sigma$ and $e$ represents the radiation factor, oblateness factor and eccentricity of the primaries respectively). If $\alpha = 0$ but $\sigma \neq 0$, the libration points slightly displaced to the right-side from its previous location and form scalene triangle with the primaries and go vertically downward as $e$ increases. If $\alpha \neq 0$ and $\sigma\neq 0$, the libration points $L_{4,5}$ form scalene triangle with the primaries and as e increases $L_{4,5}$ move downward and displaced to the left-side. Also, the libration points $L_{4,5}$ are stable for the critical mass parameter $\mu \leq \mu_c$.

      Posted on January 27, 2016

      Since January 2016, the Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy has moved to Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. This means that each accepted article is being published immediately online with DOI and article citation ID with starting page number 1. Articles are also visible in Web of Science immediately. All these have helped shorten the publication time and have improved the visibility of the articles.
