Duality properties of Gorringe-Leach equations
In the category of motions preserving the angular momentum's direction, Gorringe and Leach exhibited two classes of differential equations having elliptical orbits.
After enlarging slightly these classes, we show that they're related by a duality correspondence of the Arnold-Vassiliev type.
The specific associated conserved quantities (Laplace-Runge-Lenz vector and Fradkin-Jauch-Hill tensor) are then dual reflections one of the other.
