$n$-body problem; ordinary differential equations; Painlevé’s theorem
In this article we show some aspects of analytical and numerical solution of the $n$-body problem, which arises from the classical Newtonian model for gravitation attraction. We prove the non-existence of stationary solutions and give an alternative proof for Painlevé’s theorem.
