Detailed Description

369 pgs, 2000, Springer/Praxis
ISBN 978-3540672807

This excellent book on orbit prediction and determination for satellite theory is not just another engineering cookbook; rather it derives from first principles, high precision models and as well as precision techniques for their solution. Today's demands for unprecedented levels position accuracy together with the availability of powerful processors have virtually replaced the need for analytical perturbation theories with purely numerical treatments, which this book emphasizes. It includes a lucid discussion of time and reference systems, and presents a thorough discussion of tracking and observation models, a subject that is rarely covered to any degree. A CD-ROM is also included that contains C++ source code for all examples presented.
