Dynamics of planets and satellites and theories of their motion
Abstract
Planetary theory and analytical methods are considered, taking into account mathematical results of the general planetary theory in rectangular coordinates, the construction of planetary theory by iterative procedure, the qualitative dynamics of the sunJupiterSaturn system, the relation of a contracting earth to the apparent accelerations of the sun and moon, the asteroidal planet as the origin of comets, and mechanized algebraic operations on fourth generation computers. Lunar theory and minor planet motions are considered along with numerical and other techniques, gravitational problems of three or more bodies, and satellites of Jupiter and Saturn, and artificial satellites. Attention is given to an application of the stroboscopic method, a theory of motion of Jupiter's Galilean satellites, a secondorder theory of the Galilean satellites of Jupiter, and the improvement of orbits of satellites of Saturn using photographic observations.
