Nonintegrability of the n-center problem for \(n>2\). (Russian) Zbl 0551.70008
Using topologic considerations the author proves theorems and lemmas (Maupertuis’ principle is a consequence of a lemma) demonstrating that the problem of n centers may be integrated, on the level of nonnegative energy, only in cases of Kepler and Euler.
