## Commentary- All B-H-H solutions belong to the same topology class:a
- All of these solutions' initial conditions exhibit same symmetry so that their initial conditions are of the form: coordinates \((x_1,0),(x_2,0),(x_3,0)\), velocities \((0,\dot{y}_1),(0,\dot{y}_2),(0,\dot{y}_3)\) - Initial conditions for the satellites are parametrized using Jacobi coordinates and total angular momentum L: \(a=(x_1-x_2)/\sqrt{2}\), \(c=(v_{y1}-v_{y2})/\sqrt{2}\), \(b=(x_1+x_2-2x_3)/\sqrt{6}=1\), \(d=(v_{y1}+v_{y2}-2v_{y3})/\sqrt{6}=L-ac \).
- Body masses in Broucke's and Henon's original papers equal \(1/3\), while all i.c. data given here have been rescaled so that mass equals 1 while the period remains the same - Henon solutions are relatively periodic, i.e. periodic up to a finite rotation through a certain angle. Their motion in real space is shown in the corotating coordinate system in which all orbits are closed (see [4] for details) - Broucke A solutions and all of the Henon solutions are different from Broucke R solutions by the direction of the two rotations (A - retrograde, R - direct)
- Broucke solutions: R8, R9, R10, R13, A15, A8, A9, A10, A14, A15 seem to be "semi-choreographies" where two bodies move on the same trajectory and the third one goes its own way
