Orbital Motion

Preface to First Edition The term “ orbital motion ' implies the movement of one
body about another . Traditionally this may involve the revolution of a satellite
about a planet , or a planet about the Sun , or one star about another or about the

Orbital Motion

Long established as one of the premier references in the fields of astronomy, planetary science, and physics, the fourth edition of Orbital Motion continues to offer comprehensive coverage of the analytical methods of classical celestial mechanics while introducing the recent numerical experiments on the orbital evolution of gravitating masses and the astrodynamics of artificial satellites and interplanetary probes. Following detailed reviews of earlier editions by distinguished lecturers in the USA and Europe, the author has carefully revised and updated this edition. Each chapter provides a thorough introduction to prepare you for more complex concepts, reflecting a consistent perspective and cohesive organization that is used throughout the book. A noted expert in the field, the author not only discusses fundamental concepts, but also offers analyses of more complex topics, such as modern galactic studies and dynamical parallaxes. New to the Fourth Edition: * Numerous updates and reorganization of all chapters to encompass new methods * New results from recent work in areas such as satellite dynamics * New chapter on the Caledonian symmetrical n-body problem Extending its coverage to meet a growing need for this subject in satellite and aerospace engineering, Orbital Motion, Fourth Edition remains a top reference for postgraduate and advanced undergraduate students, professionals such as engineers, and serious amateur astronomers.

Orbital Motion in Strongly Perturbed Environments

Small bodies orbit the sun on trajectories that are dominated by the solar
gravitational attraction. The implicit assumption we make in this book is that the
orbital motion of a small body can be described accurately by the two-body
problem ...

Orbital Motion in Strongly Perturbed Environments

The investigation of minor solar system bodies, such as comets and asteroids, using spacecraft requires an understanding of orbital motion in strongly perturbed environments. The solutions to a wide range of complex and challenging problems in this field are reviewed in this comprehensive and authoritative work.

The Laws of Orbital Motion

This book provides a detailed explanation of the mathematics behind Newton's theories of orbital motion and spin theory, and how they apply to astronomic (elliptical) orbits and atomic (circular) orbits.

The Laws of Orbital Motion

This book provides a detailed explanation of the mathematics behind Newton's theories of orbital motion and spin theory, and how they apply to astronomic (elliptical) orbits and atomic (circular) orbits. It includes all the formulas necessary to calculate their properties in a format that anybody with a basic knowledge of mathematics can understand.

Orbital Motion

Sometimes the motions are systematic and essentially repeating, as in the orbital
movement of a planet about the Sun or the Moon about the Earth; in other cases
there is seemingly no repetition, as when a star escapes from a galaxy and ...
