stable n-body orbits was created by pczerner

I was wondering if there was a computational method to determine all stable orbits of, say, 5-body system, adjusting masses, etc.

Thanks for any info.

Yes - check out the Sky&Telescope website software downloads page. S&T ran an article about just this subject a few months ago with a link to a bit of simulation software. I didn't follow it up, but you should find it if you rummage around.

Paul - this is a simulator for extrasolar planets. Not sure if it exactly what you're looking for - but its the site Phil referred to. Cheers
