Abstract:

Mathematical developments of the gravitational effects of the sun and moon on a close satellite were made. The developments were made as a result of attempts to adapt to a form convenient in analyzing close satellite orbits for terrestrial gravitational field variations. The disturbing functions are expressed in osculating Keplerian elements for use in equations of motion. Author
