Study of perturbation integrals applied to the dynamics of spacecrafts around Galilean moons

Several scientific missions have been proposed for a deeper exploration of planetary systems. These missions require a lot of specialized techniques in order to reach a better understanding of the dynamics involved in their planning. In order to help to get important features about each system under study, the present study proposes to use different definitions of integrals of the perturbing forces received by spacecrafts to help to find the best orbits for them. These computations present important information about the level of perturbation acting in the spacecraft due to the effects of each force considered in the system and they also help to understand the evolution of these perturbations. The system of Galilean moons is explored to test these techniques.
