Abstract

Our research combines mean motion resonances and dissipative forces in the averaged elliptic spatial restricted three-body problem. The models presented can be applied in many contexts mixing resonances and dissipations, e.g., asteroid belt, transneptunian region, exoplanets, systems of planetary rings, etc. We propose a semi-numerical model that simulates the behaviour of test particles under the effect of generic forces, functions of powers of the position and/or of the velocity. This model is valid for any orbital eccentricities or inclinations, even at high values. Captures around symmetric and asymmetric equilibria are reproduced and the apparitions of a plateau of inclination for long periods of time are dectected.
