Spaceflight Dynamics

9780071156318: Spaceflight Dynamics

This text is written for an undergraduate course in spacecraft dynamics and orbital mechanics, and includes three dimensional treatment. It has less mathematical detail than is often found in undergraduate texts in this subject. Reference is often made to actual flight vehicles and satellites, thus providing a background to current research being done in the field, and numerous examples illustrate topics such as orbital mechanics, aircraft navigation, celestial mechanics, re-entry dynamics, and interplanetary trajectories. This new edition includes explicit notation for vector derivatives and rotation rates.
