This book provides a comprehensive treatment of dynamics of space systems, starting with the fundamentals and covering topics from basic kinematics and dynamics to more advanced celestial mechanics. All material is presented in a consistent manner, and the reader is guided through the various derivations and proofs in a tutorial way. Cookbook formulas are avoided; instead, the reader is led to understand the principles underlying the equations at issue, and shown how to apply them to various dynamical systems. The book is divided into two parts. Part I covers analytical treatment of topics such as basic dynamic principles up to advanced energy concepts. Special attention is paid to the use of rotating reference frames that often occur in aerospace systems. Part II covers basic celestial mechanics, treating the two-body problem, restricted three-body problem, gravity field modeling, perturbation methods, spacecraft formation flying, and orbit transfers. MATLAB[registered], Mathematica[registered] and C-Code toolboxes are provided for the rigid body kinematics routines discussed in chapter 3, and the basic orbital 2-body orbital mechanics routines discussed in chapter 9. A solutions manual is also available for professors. MATLAB[registered] is a registered trademark of The Math Works, Inc.; Mathematica[registered] is a registered trademark of Wolfram Research, Inc.
