Seven resonant planets around Trapist-1 star

I think that this is a Newtonian explanation, the article does not define what is meant by “resonance” but it could easily be googled up. Any non Newtonian effects would be very small, and can now be understood with our new lagrangian method, which gives forward and retrograde precessions. This is not Euler Bernoulli resonance or spin connection resonance or any kind of resonance as usually meant in physics. Perhaps it is a journalistic term. The computer simulation would be an N body Newtonian simulation similar to molecular dynamics computer simulation. They play around with the input parameters to get a stable system.

Perhaps you might be interested in this information regarding possible explanations using resonance of the stability found in the Trapist-1 planet system.
