Summary 
In this book the problem of station keeping is studied for orbits near libration points in the solar system. The main focus is on orbits near halo ones in the (Earth+Moon)Sun system. Taking as starting point the restricted threebody problem, the motion in the full solar system is considered as a perturbation of this simplified model. All the study is done with enough generality to allow easy application to other primarysecondary systems as a simple extension of the analytical and numerical computations.
