Abstract : The solar influenced motion of a particle near the earth-moon triangular libration points was studied. The von Zeipel method was applied to the very restricted problem of four bodies proposed by Huang. Although this model of the restricted problem of four bodies excludes the indirect effect of the sun, it exhibits some of the features observed in more realistic models. (Author)
