Abstract:

The problem of approximate determination of the probabilistic characteristics mathematical expectation and variance of parameters of an osculating elliptical orbit is analyzed for an artificial satellite in a central gravitational field, taking the resistance of the atmosphere as the only perturbing force. Equations of motion of such a satellite in osculating elements are written from which approximate expressions for increments of parameters at an arbitrary revolution of the orbit are derived. Author
