Stability at Potential Maxima: The L-4 and L-5 Points of the Restricted Three-Body Problem.
Greenberg, Richard; Davis, Donald R.
American Journal of Physics, v46 n10 p1068-70 Oct 1978
Describes a dynamical system which is stable at potential maxima. The maxima, called L-4 and L-5, are stable locations of the restricted three-body problem. Energy loss from the system will tend to drive it away from stability. (GA)
