comment How can I calculate the orbital periods in a binary star system?
@Gerald well, edited another brute force proposal, using planar rotation as an easy way to detect full revolution.

comment How can I calculate the orbital periods in a binary star system?
@Gerald I'm afraid I won't :) my proposal is nothing but a simple iterative process, where additional perturbations may be introduced at each step. I avoided differentials because the problem doesn't require an exact solution (and partly because that would require me to reopen some books...). But based on your comment, it appears I misread the OP: I thought the question was about trajectories, but might be about the "period", as duration?

You're right, OP clearly stated the requirement but I provided a broader answer nonetheless. I'll edit the answer to match N=2.
