# Astro 8 – The Method of Gauss

Here it is.

# Murray and Dermott orbital elements figure

Here is the figure I passed out today, only larger.Murray&Dermott

# getting orbital elements from r and rdot

Here are my notes describing the algorythm for getting the orbital elements once you have got r and rdot vectors in ecliptic coordinates.gettingOrbElements

# Astro 7 – Brightness & magnitudes

Here are my summary slides from Week 2 Friday PM lecture.

Get ready for Week 3. All OD, all the time.

# Orbital Elements

Here are pages of the Kepler problem which focus on the four orbital elements other than the semi-major axis a, and the eccentricity, e. The last pages give you an algorythm for ephemeris generation.OrbElements

# Kepler problem

Eight pages of notes on solving the equations of motion for the inverse square law.Kepler problem
