The co-orbital motion is a perfect paradigm of dynamical regime that draws the attention of scientists belonging to different communities. As a matter of fact, this orbital regime plays a key role in the understanding of the three-body problem, to model the motion of natural bodies and eventually observe them, and to design spacecraft trajectories for exploration missions (e.g., distant retrograde orbits or orbits associated with the Lagrangian points L3, L4 and L5).
The aim of the workshop is to bring together mathematicians, planetary scientists and aerospace engineers to share their knowledge and experience as regards to mathematical tools, results and possible applications.
Four presentations have been scheduled
Low-Thrust Transfer to a distant Sun-Earth DRO through a SEL point launch from the Cubesat HENON Mission Analysis
On the motion of the plutonian moons
The hunt for extrasolar co-orbital worlds: attempts, results and implications
The coorbital dynamics in binary systems
