Comment on "New Formulation of the Two Body Problem Using a Continued Fractional Potential "

Authors: M. E. Hassani

In a relatively recent article by F.A. Abd El-Salam et al. [Astrophys. Space Sci. 350, 507 (2014)], the authors claimed a new formulation of the two-body problem via the introduction of the continued fractional potential. Even if the idea of applying the continued fraction procedure to the gravitational physics is by itself a novelty, the study presented in their work suffers both from some mathematical and physical issues. These issues are discussed in this comment.
