On the existence of bi--pyramidal central configurations of the $n+2$--body problem with an $n$--gon base

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper we prove the existence of central configurations of the $n+2$--body problem where $n$ equal masses are located at the vertices of a regular $n$--gon and the remaining $2$ masses, which are not necessarily equal, are located on the straight line orthogonal to the plane containing the $n$--gon passing through its center. Here this kind of central configurations is called bi--pyramidal central configurations. In particular, we prove that if the masses $m_{n+1}$ and $m_{n+2}$ and their positions satisfy convenient relations, then the configuration is central. We give explicitly those relations.
