Chaotic dynamics in the planar gravitational many-body problem with rigid body rotations

Abstract:

The discovery of Pluto’s small moons in the last decade has brought attention to the dynamics of the dwarf planet’s satellites. With such systems in mind, we study a planar N-body system in which all the bodies are point masses, except for a single rigid body. We then present a reduced model consisting of a planar N-body problem with the rigid body treated as a 1D continuum (i.e. the body is treated as a rod with an arbitrary mass distribution). Such a model provides a good approximation to h...
