Fundamentals of Astrodynamics Dover Books on Aeronautical EngineeringDover Publications #ad - Several original unpublished derivations are included. Dover Publications. This dover edition is the result. The text is structured for teaching. The authors suggest how to use the text for a first course in astrodynamics or for a two-course sequence. This major instructional tool effectively communicates the subject to engineering students in a manner found in no other textbook.
Two-body mechanics are applied to the ballistic missile problem, including launch error analysis and targeting on a rotating earth. An entirely new text had to be evolved, geared to the use of high speed digital computers and actual current practice in the industry. Over the years the new approach was proven in the classrooms of the Academy; its students entering graduate engineering schools were found to possess a better understanding of astrodynamics than others.
Its efficiency has been thoroughly demonstrated. Dover feels privileged in joining with the authors to make its concepts and text matter available to other faculties. A foundation for all that follows is the development of the basic two-body and n-body equations of motion; orbit determination is then treated, and the classical orbital elements, coordinate transformations, and differential correction.
