DETERMINATION OF CLOSED ORBITS AROUND ASYMMETRICAL ROTATING GALAXIES BY AN ENERGY METHOD

В. А. Антонов, О. А. Железняк, А. А. Терещенко

Abstract


The influence of galaxy’s triaxiality on theform and orientation of closed orbits laying near the central galactic body being modeled by triaxial ellipsoid isinvestigated. The inclination of closed orbits around a galaxy depends on the galaxy’s triaxiality.

Keywords


nonsymmetric gravitational field; galaxies; closed orbits.
