Abstract. The long term perturbation of a Newtonian binary
system by an incident gravitational wave is discussed in connection
with the issue of gravitational ionization.
The periodic orbits of the planar tidal
equation are investigated and the
conditions for their existence are presented.
The possibility of ionization of a Keplerian orbit via gravitational
radiation is discussed.
