Summary
  • "Determining orbits for natural and artificial celestial bodies is an essential step in the exploration and understanding of the Solar System. However, recent progress in the quality and quantity of data from astronomical observations and spacecraft tracking has generated orbit determination problems which cannot be handled by classical algorithms. This book presents new algorithms capable of handling the millions of bodies which could be observed by next generation surveys, and which can fully exploit tracking data with state-of-the-art levels of accuracy. After a general mathematical background and summary of classical algorithms, the new algorithms are introduced using the latest mathematical tools and results, to which the authors have personally contributed. Case studies based on actual astronomical surveys and space missions are provided, with applications of these new methods. Intended for graduate students and researchers in applied mathematics, physics, astronomy and aerospace engineering, this book is also of interest to non-professional astronomers"--Provided by publisher
  • "This book is a tool for our own teaching and an opportunity to rethink and reorganize the results of our own research. However, I think such a book can be useful to others, for two main reasons. First, spaceflight is no longer the privilege of the few superpowers, but is becoming available to many nations and agencies. Orbit determination is an essential knowhow, both in the planning phase of mission analysis and in the operations of space missions. Thus its mathematical tools need to become widely available"--Provided by publisher
