An oxymoron: Generalized Restricted Three Body Problem

The restricted three body problem (RTBP) is with no doubt the most studied problem in Celestial Mechanics. It consists of the motion of an infinitesimal mass that has no influence on the motion of other two point masses, called primaries, which move in Keplerian orbits around their mutual center of mass. In order to have a better approximation to real problems like the non-sphericity of the primaries, or to include radiation pressure of one primary, or post-Newtonian effects, this rectricted problem is generalized by including some additional terms. However, many authors enthusiastically add more and more hypothesis, and go beyond the allowed laws. In the talk, we will show some of these wrong assumptions that trespass the threshold of Physics laws.
