Project: Research

Project Details

Description

Situations of Spin-orbit resonances are numerous in the Solar system; the building of models os resonances (1/1 in general, 3/2 for Mercury) and the determination of fundamental frequencies, are the main features of the researches developped in that field, in Namur, for years. The mathematical tools are the hamiltonian formalism and the theory of perturbations.
