Here is an accurate and readable translation of a seminal article by Henri Poincare that is a classic in the study of dynamical systems popularly called chaos theory. In an effort to understand the stability of orbits in the solar system, Poincare applied a Hamiltonian formulation to the equations of planetary motion and studied these differential equations in the limited case of three bodies to arrive at properties of the equations' solutions, such as orbital resonances and horseshoe orbits.
Poincare wrote for professional mathematicians and astronomers interested in celestial mechanics and differential equations. Contemporary historians of math or science and researchers in dynamical systems and planetary motion with an interest in the origin or history of their field will find his work fascinating.
"In the work under review, Popp, a professional translator, has produced an English translation of Poincare's monograph. ... This book will be most appropriate for readers with an expressed interest in the history of mathematics and physics or dynamical systems. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above; researchers and faculty." (M. D. Sanford, Choice, Vol. 55 (4), December, 2017)
