The Fundamentals of Ethics - Introduction
The fourth edition features several exciting changes to this exceptional book. Extended to pages, including a new chapter on interplanetary missions, there are ground illumination calculations, Moon rise and set data, and a listing of relevant Internet sites. Moreover, there are improved and expanded discussions of coordinate systems, orbit determination and differential correction. It is not only the perfect textbook, but a superb reference book that will be used over and over again in practical astrodynamics. The increased power of microcomputers has changed the study of perturbations perhaps more than any other subfield of astrodynamics, but students and practitioners still need a compendium of well-documented algorithms to use that power. Vallado's book is just such a compendium, integrating two-body dynamics with extensive perturbation methods and real-world applications while consolidating recent literature about coordinates and fundamental concepts. It attempts to use new programming capabilities to exploit the keys for the future-- standardizing, documenting, modularity, efficiency, and maintainability.
Translated by Stephen Lyle. Fifty years after Sputnik, artificial satellites have become indispensable monitors in many areas, such as economics, Springer, 3rd edition, , p. This is a modern textbook that guides the reader through the theory and practice of satellite orbit prediction and determination. Starting from basic principles of orbital mechanics, it covers elaborate force models as well as precise methods of satellite tracking. Emphasis is on numerical treatment and a multitude of algorithms adopted in Primis,
