In some cases, e.g., multiple planets orbiting a star, some
generalized information can be calculated such as whether the
orbits are likely to remain stable (a planet thrown out of the
system would imply instability, for example) or become chaotic,
i.e., Perturbation Theory. The Jacobi Integral is another
method addressing mathematics,dynamics)Referenced by:
