The spin-orbit resonances of the solar system: a mathematical treatment matching physical data. (English) Zbl 1302.70034
Summary: In the mathematical framework of a restricted, slightly dissipative spin-orbit model, we prove the existence of periodic orbits for astronomical parameter values corresponding to all satellites of the Solar System observed in exact spin-orbit resonance.
