In science:

In this solution 3 equal masses travel on a eight shaped planar curve; this orbit is obtained minimizing the action integral on the set of simple planar choreographies with some special symmetry constraints.
Action minimizing orbits in the n-body problem with simple choreography constraint
According to [2, 10] a simple choreographies is a motion in which the bodies lie on the same curve and exchange their mutual positions after a fixed time.
Action minimizing orbits in the n-body problem with simple choreography constraint
This result agrees with the one of Chenciner and Desolneux in in the sense that, among choreographies, the minimum of the action is the relative equilibrium motion correspondent to the minimum among central configurations; moreover it agrees with the work of Albouy and Chenciner in since the minimum is a planar motion.
Action minimizing orbits in the n-body problem with simple choreography constraint
If the minimal central configuration is planar and it is a regular polygon, then the correspondent motion of relative equilibrium (i.e. the circle) is the absolute minimum of the action under the choreography constraint.
Action minimizing orbits in the n-body problem with simple choreography constraint
J il eJ kt , and the simple choreography constraint is equivalent to eτ J l = eτ J k ; since k ≥ l we obtain k = l + rn, r ∈ Z.
