The present plots, tables and programs give the location and estimated strength in relative units of the three-body resonances between a massless particle and two planets. The estimated strength Delta rho was calculated following Gallardo (2014, Icarus 231, 273-286). It depends on the eccentricity, inclination and the argument of perihelion (w) of the particle's orbit. For more details see preprint here.

- From 0 to 1000 au. Code colors: resonances involving Mercury as the most inner planet = red, Venus=green, Earth=blue, Mars=pink, Jupiter=black, Saturn=red, Uranus = green.
- From 2 au to 3.5 au. Blue: two-body resonances, red: three-body resonances. Two-body and three-body resonances are not to the same scale.

- Look at the tables for the strongest resonances near the semimayor axis of the body's orbit.
Then compute the corresponding critical angle

sigma = k0*lambda_ast + k1*lambda_pla1 + k2*lambda_pla2 - (k0+k1+k2)*longper_ast

and follow its time evolution. - Or run the program ATLAS3BR and compute the strengths of all resonances near the semimajor axis of the particle according to the values of (e,i,w) of the particle's orbit. This is the best choice. Then compute and look at the time evolution of the critical angles corresponding to the strongest resonances in the interval.
