Abstract:

The present Proceedings should acquaint the reader with the current state of research on the behavior of nonpropulsive space vehicles, indicate the more pressing unsolved problems, and furnish examples of mathematical techniques which are currently useful. Besides presenting much new and advanced material, an effort is made in these Proceedings to give readers basic information, in fields other than their own, which they need to have a full understanding of space problems in their own fields. Accordingly an effort is made to acquaint the mathematical specialists with the key space problems in aerodynamics, geophysics, orbit theory, etc. to acquaint orbit specialists with useful mathematical techniques, and to give them enough background in geophysics, aerodynamics, etc. for them to see the relevance of these areas for the new orbits required for space exploration and so on, for other areas represented in space activity.
