Does anyone know of any good references for the CR3BP -- the circular restricted 3 body problem? Emphasizing on real-life applications, and interpretation of the numerical solutions? Thank you. There are quite a few hits when I googled the topic, but I am wondering if anyone knows of any "Bible" for the subject.

Hi chump, and welcome to Physics Stack Exchange! This would be a better question if you just ask what it is you want to know about the CR3BP, rather than asking for references. People can still provide references to support their answers if they want. –  David Z Apr 3 '12 at 21:32
What is the circular restricted 3-body problem? 3 bodies attracting and restricted to move along a hoop? –  Ron Maimon Apr 4 '12 at 0:40
