Adapting Marchal's test of escape to real triple stars
Astronomy and Astrophysics
Context. For a general N-body system, Marchal constructed an analytical test of escape, which uses only a one-dimensional projected motion state of the system at any given instant. This test is well adapted to identifying real, disintegrating small stellar systems, of which the full motion states are generally unavailable. However, to our knowledge, there has been no practical application of this test until the present-day. Aims. In this paper, we aim at adapting the above test to visual tripledoi:10.1051/0004-6361/200809392 fatcat:3zwlydu65rcgvp62gpwa6dcbmu
