A Question for Distant Retrograde Orbit in CR3BP

  1. Jun 30, 2018 #1
    In the Sun-Earth system in circular restricted three body problem, how can i define the initial conditions for a distant retrograde orbit? The state vector has to be X=[x0 0 0 0 vy0 0]. How i define the initial position in x-direction and the initial velocity in y-direction.? What values do i give and how do i find these values?

    Thanking you in advance
