Learning Fundamentals of Astrodynamics with Matlab(r) and Stk(r) (Dover Books on Aeronautical Engineering) (Paperback)
This volume provides a detailed course in solving astrodynamics problems with MATLAB(R) and STK(R) software. It is intended as a companion volume to the long-awaited 2019 second edition of the classic and widely used text, Fundamentals of Astrodynamics, which was developed at the U.S. Air Force Academy and originally published in 1971. Topics include:
- Orbit determination and the classical orbital elements
- Coordinate transformations
- Differential correction
- Kepler and Gauss problems
- Integration schemes and error
- Analytic formulations of several common perturbations
For undergraduate engineering students in the field of astrodynamics.
