Abstract:

Two systems of differential equations are said to be equivalent if the trajectories of one coincide with the trajectories of the other modulo a transformation of indepent time variable. The equivalence of second order systems is discussed, and the results obtained are used a derive a variational principle for the plane restricted three-body problem. Author
