## Escape with the formation of a binary in two-dimensional three-body problem. I
The escape with the formation of a binary in three-body problem is
studied in a series of two papers. This paper deals with the
systematic regularity of escape with the formation of a binary with
low perturbing velocities for equal masses in the evolution of stellar
systems in a plane. The main results are: (a) For triple close
approaches (b)
(c) where
is the minimum moment of inertia of
the system,
