G. Beutler's Methods of Celestial Mechanics is a coherent
textbook for students as well as an excellent reference for
practitioners. The first volume gives a thorough treatment of
celestial mechanics and presents all the necessary mathematical
details that a professional would need. The reader will appreciate
the well-written chapters on numerical solution techniques for
ordinary differential equations, as well as that on orbit
determination. In the second volume applications to the rotation of
earth and moon, to artificial earth satellites and to the planetary
system are presented. The author addresses all aspects that are of
importance in high-tech applications, such as the detailed
gravitational fields of all planets and the earth, the oblateness
of the earth, the radiation pressure and the atmospheric drag. The
concluding part of this monumental treatise explains and details
state-of-the-art professional and thoroughly-tested software for
celestial mechanics. The accompanying CD-ROM enables readers to
employ this software themselves and also serves as to illustrate
and reinforce the related theoretical concepts.
