Abstract:

A study is presented on the basis of Satellites and Riemannian Geometry Knothe, Mathematics Umbraticola, May 17, 1962. The following deductions lead to explicit representations of the gs in the case of the bulge potential of the earth, to an explicit expression for the function psi, called the characteristic function of satellite motion, and to an expliit expression for a new invariant triple integrl which shows a similarity to Liouvilles theorem in Ergodic heory.
