• Chaos in the Kepler system 

    Chicone, Carmen Charles; Mashhoon, Bahram; Retzloff, David (American Institute of Physics, 1999-02)
    The long-term dynamical evolution of a Keplerian binary orbit due to the emission and absorption of gravitational radiation is investigated. This work extends our previous results on transient chaos in the planar case to ...
  • Gravitational ionization: a chaotic net in the Kepler system 

    Chicone, Carmen Charles; Mashhoon, Bahram; Retzloff, David (American Institute of Physics, 1997-03)
    The long-term nonlinear dynamics of a Keplerian binary system under the combined influences of gravitational radiation damping and external tidal perturbations is analysed. Gravitational radiation reaction leads the binary ...
