Aerospace Engineering. This book deals with the motion of the center of mass of a spacecraft; this discipline is generally called astrodynamics. The book focuses on an analytical treatment of the motion of spacecraft and provides insight into the fundamentals of spacecraft orbit dynamics. A large number of topics are treated in a uniform and consistent way. The text is intended for senior undergraduate or graduate engineering students, and is based on course notes that have been used in various versions since for courses given for M. It is a typical student study book: the knowledge of mathematics and mechanics required from the reader corresponds to that of students having a B. However, the book is also useful for astrodynamicists and is a valuable resource for anyone interested in astrodynamics.
