Abstract. We study the motion of the infinitesimal mass in the planar circular restricted three-body problem. The infinitesimal
mass can undergo regular or chaotic motions. It can be captured by one of the primaries, it can make transfers from one
primary to another, or it can even escape those captures. We analyze through statistical methods the time-series given by
the time intervals between successive crossings made by the infinitesimal particle to a given Poincar section. We apply
Takens/Yorke embedding theory to reconstruct the phase space from these time series, and we use the correlation dimension
of the reconstructed phase space as a tool to distinguish between various types of motions.
