Comparison of Molecular and Gravitational Three-Body Collisions [thesis]

Aaron Nicholas Larner
The present work aims to compare and contrast the topological structure of twodimensional three body collisions using a molecular and a gravitational potential. The study presents the results of computationally determined trajectories in the form of topological representations of the configuration space. These representations describe the outcome of different trajectories based on specific initial conditions.
