Hi all, I am looking for a good book about the famous (infamous perhaps?) three body problem - both theoretical and numerical hardless and accomplishments.

can you help? Thanks

For the Restricted three-body problem, I suggest: Dynamical Systems, the Three-Body Problem and Space Mission Design By Marsden,Koon,Lo and Ross Available free at: www2.esm.vt.edu/~sdross/books

This book is a very nice compilation of results, proofs related to symbolic dynamics in the system, and numerical techniques for designing low energy trajectories. A great resource.

If you want a more popular book, then

Florin Diacu & Philip Holmes: Celestial Encounters: The Origins of Chaos and Stability

is a must.
