The arcs of Neptune, located in the Adams ring, are denser regions probably consist of particles and objects in the order of meters or even kilometers. These arches are in corotation resonance with the satellite Galatea . We now know that in addition to bows are displaced from the resonance position , only two of the four discovered arches are still visible. A new containment mechanism was proposed in which coorbitais satellites keeps the particles of confined arches. This project will analyze the possibility of formation of various coorbitais through small satellites break. This project will be based on the work of Treffenstäd , Mourão and Winter (2015).
