# Planar Three-Body Problem in Phase Space

Planar Three-Body Problem in Phase Space

Trajectories of three point masses , , interacting via Newtonian force fields in 2D (planar three-body problem). This Demonstration allows you to vary the initial positions and velocities of the three bodies and their masses. We start the dance with a choreography by Chenciner and Montgomery.
