  • Abstract


    The present paper deals with the effect of Stokes drag force on the existence and stability of collinear and non-collinear libration points in circular restricted three-body problem when less massive primary is an ellipsoid. During the investigation, it is found that there exist five libration points Li (i = 1, 2… 5) out of which three are collinear and two are non-collinear. We observed that the Stokes drag force does not affect the collinear libration points while non-collinear libration points are affected by it and all the libration points either collinear or non-collinear are unstable in Lyapunov sense for the given range of dissipative constant k and mass parameter µ.
