In this thesis, we bring together three different problems in studying the equations where ui is a vector of length m, and β is a real parameter restricted to β ≥ -1. The N-body problem concerns N masses attracting one another according to a (1)/(r2) gravitational force. Much work has been done in finding central configurations of the N masses. If a system of masses released from a central configuration, it will remain similar to itself for all time, and can exhibit periodic behaviour.
