             abstract = "This paper has the goal of searching for natural trajectories that 
                         can be used for a particle or a spacecraft coming from a region of 
                         the space far from Jupiter system to be captured into this system 
                         by making close approaches with the Galilean satellites of the 
                         planet. The opposite situation is also possible and escape 
                         trajectories can also be found. This type of maneuver is called 
                         Swing-By and it is usual in astrodynamics. It was used in many 
                         space missions to reduce the fuel consumption by gaining or 
                         loosing energy from the gravity of a celestial body. Several 
                         famous examples are the Voyager, Cassini, Galileo and other 
                         missions. The idea of the present research is to study this type 
                         of maneuver using the Galilean satellites of Jupiter, to search 
                         for trajectories that change the two-body energy (particle or 
                         spacecraft)(Jupiter) from positive to negative (a capture 
                         trajectory) or from negative to positive (an escape trajectory). 
                         Those trajectories can be used for a spacecraft going or leaving 
                         the planet Jupiter or to explain how particles can be captured or 
                         escape from Jupiter system by close approaches with the Galilean 
                         satellites. Initial conditions are varied to cover the whole 
                         possible alternatives and then small regions of captures and 
                         escapes are identified. After that, a study is made to see the 
                         accuracy of the Tisserands method when applied to those close 
                         approach trajectories.",
