Long established as one of the premier references in the fields of astronomy, planetary science, and physics, the fourth edition of Orbital Motion continues to offer comprehensive coverage of the analytical methods of classical celestial mechanics while introducing the recent numerical experiments on the orbital evolution of gravitating masses and the astrodynamics of artificial satellites and interplanetary probes.

Following detailed reviews of earlier editions by distinguished lecturers in the USA and Europe, the author has carefully revised and updated this edition. Each chapter provides a thorough introduction to prepare you for more complex concepts, reflecting a consistent perspective and cohesive organization that is used throughout the book. A noted expert in the field, the author not only discusses fundamental concepts, but also offers analyses of more complex topics, such as modern galactic studies and dynamical parallaxes.

New to the Fourth Edition:

? Numerous updates and reorganization of all chapters to encompass new methods

? New results from recent work in areas such as satellite dynamics

? New chapter on the Caledonian symmetrical n-body problem

Extending its coverage to meet a growing need for this subject in satellite and aerospace engineering, Orbital Motion, Fourth Edition remains a top reference for postgraduate and advanced undergraduate students, professionals such as engineers, and serious amateur astronomers.

Review:

Each chapter is accompanied by exercises (with answers and some hints) that are designed to give the student confidence. This book retains its usefulness as a comprehensive text on introductory celestial mechanics....
- James Collett in Physical Science Educational Reviews Vol. 7 No. 12, June 2006

Praise for the Third Edition
...a classic text ... on the orbits of everything from galactic clusters down to grapefruit-sized Earth satellites.

Book Description Halsted Press, New York City, New York, 1978. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. First Edicion. "This text is therefore aimed principally at university and technical college students requiring an introduction to the subject of orbital motion. Such students may have little or no knowledge of astronomy or of space science but, for one reason or another, feel the need to learn basic concepts, techniques and results achieved in the subject. Much of the material has been used in courses given by the author in the department of astronomy, qeroengineering and geography of Glasgow University over the past fifteen years or so. Parts of an earlier work by the author {now out of print} have been extensively rewritten, updated and incorporated in the present text." This book has 489 pages and is illustrated. The book is remainder marked on the base. Overall, a VERY GOOD copy of the SCARCE FIRST EDITION. Seller Inventory # 058234
