A comprehensive textbook encompassing the analytical methods of
classical celestial mechanics, the recent numerical experiments
into the orbital evolution of gravitating masses, and the
astrodynamics of artificial satellites and interplanetary probes.
It requires little or no prior familiarity with astronomy or space
science but assumes a knowledge of calculus and elementary vector
analysis. Problems, with answers, are included as are appendices of
relevant astronomical and mathematical data. This text is intended
primarily for postgraduate and advanced undergraduate students but
its discussion of orbital computation will be of interest to
serious amateur astronomers. The third edition includes new data
concerning various bodies in the Solar System, particularly in the
systems of Jupiter and Saturn. New results from recent work on the
stability of the Solar System and its sub-systems are included to
update the text throughout.
