Branches of periodic orbits for the planar restricted 3-body problem
(800K, Postscript)

ABSTRACT.  We describe a method for studying the existence and the linear stability of branches of periodic solutions for a dynamical system with a parameter. We apply the method to the planar restricted 3-body problem extending the results of [A]. More precisely, we prove the existence of some continuous 
branches of periodic orbits with the energy or the masses of the primaries as parameters, and provide an approximation of the orbits with rigorous bounds. We prove the linear stability or instability of the orbits.
