Researchers at the Katz School of Science and Health have developed a mathematical model for analyzing the motion and gravity of a family of Trojan asteroids orbiting Jupiter.

Their paper, “Hill Four-Body Problem with Oblate Bodies: An Application to the Sun-Jupiter-Hektor-Skamandrios System,” was published in the Journal of Nonlinear Science in July.

“This is a […]
