Abstract

In this paper, we extend the flow function method for finding resonant orbits. The relation between flow function, resonance number and order of the resonant orbit are revealed. The resonant orbits design in the Sun-Earth CRTBP are demonstrated and the results show that the resonant orbits can be found globally and systematically by the flow function method. The flow function method can also be applied to obtain higher order resonant orbits. As an application, we propose a transfer trajectory to the L4/L5 SPOs by using various resonant orbits. Our results reveals that two types of insertion is possible for SPO insertion with small ΔV.
