Abstract

The restricted three body problem is treated in the framework of the post-Newtonian approximation of general relativity. The equations of motion are linear zed around the libration points L4,5. Locations of the equilibrium points L4,5 are obtained. Existence and stability of these points are investigated. The relativistic correction to the classical mass ratio is determined.
