The integration of these into a treatment of traditional development of Keplerian motion, perturbed motion, and orbital determination represents a significant accomplishment –John L.

What sets this book apart is that nearly all of the theoretical mathematics is followed by discussions of practical applications implemented in tested I felt that this book made a very lousy attempt at clearly explaining the subject material. Fundamentals of Astrodynamics and Applications. The problems posed at the end of each chapter span a useful range of difficulty, appropriate for use in a senior or graduate level course.

Mai Khanh rated it it was amazing Dec 05, The only thing that I vallqdo that this book lacked was a asfrodynamics explanation of the JPL ephemeris, ballistic capture trajectories, and trajectory optimization. Andrewcooper added it Mar 07, I’ve tried to teach Orbital Mechanics out of it to junior level aerospace engineering students and most of them didn’t like it. For example, the book includes a compendium of algorithms that allow students and professionals to determine orbits with high precision using a PC.

We would like to thank Dave Vallado for this most accomplished and comprehensive piece of work. If astrodynamics is your thing…you will be thanking him too.

Fundamentals of Astrodynamics and Applications is rapidly becoming the standard astrodynamics reference for those involved in the business of spaceflight.
