Today, you are a member of… Between Here and There is Better Than Either There or Here

Three masses, two circular orbits, Jupiter Trojans, Lagrangian Points, Constant Pattern Solutions, Barycenters, 3753 Cruithne. Yes, Members, all that involves the calculus of physics. But the complication of threes need not be anything except an elegant, mathematically defined Lagrangian point of continual motion within the comfy zone of gravitational spheres. Whether the sweet spot be L1, L2, L3, L4 or L5, this week, your calculus of variations will see your functions co-orbiting the transcendent.
