Abstract: The basic theory of Differential Galois and in particular Morales-Ramistheory is reviewed with focus in analyzing the non-integrability of variousproblems of few bodies in Celestial Mechanics. The main theoretical tools are:Morales-Ramis theorem, the algebrization method of Acosta-Bl\-azquez andKovacic-s algorithm. Morales-Ramis states that if Hamiltonian system has anadditional meromorphic integral in involution in a neighborhood of a specificsolution, then the differential Galois group of the normal variationalequations is abelian. The algebrization method permits under general conditionsto recast the variational equation in a form suitable for its analysis by meansof Kovacic-s algorithm. We apply these tools to various examples of few bodyproblems in Celestial Mechanics: a the elliptic restricted three body in theplane with collision of the primaries; b a general Hamiltonian system of twodegrees of freedom with homogeneous potential of degree -1; here we performMcGehee-s blow up and obtain the normal variational equation in the form of anhypergeometric equation. We recover Yoshida-s criterion for non-integrability.Then we contrast two methods to compute the Galois group: the well known, basedin the Schwartz-Kimura table, and the lesser based in Kovacic-s algorithm. Weapply these methodology to three problems: the rectangular four body problem,the anisotropic Kepler problem and two uncoupled Kepler problems in the line;the last two depend on a mass parameter, but while in the anisotropic problemit is integrable for only two values of the parameter, the two uncoupled Keplerproblems is completely integrable for all values of the masses.
