In response to a request, here is the complete presentation about relativity. The chetah video can be easily found on the internet.08EMwaves
Here it is.
Here is the figure I passed out today, only larger.Murray&Dermott
Here are my notes describing the algorythm for getting the orbital elements once you have got r and rdot vectors in ecliptic coordinates.gettingOrbElements
Here are my summary slides from Week 2 Friday PM lecture.
Get ready for Week 3. All OD, all the time.
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
Eight pages of notes on solving the equations of motion for the inverse square law.Kepler problem
