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.

Before answering, please see our policy on resource recommendation questions. Please write substantial answers that detail the style, content, and prerequisites of the book, paper or other resource. Explain the nature of the resource so that readers can decide which one is best suited for them rather than relying on the opinions of others. Answers containing only a reference to a book or paper will be removed!

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
