Abstract:

A first order analytical approximation of the tesseral harmonic resonance perturbations of the Keplerian elements is presented, and the mean elements the Keplerian elements with the long period portions averaged out will also be given in closed form. The results of a numerical test, which compares the analytical solution against a numerical integration of the Lagrange equations of motion, will be summarized, and the implementation of the solution in the analytical orbit determination routine ANODE will be outlined. Keywords Perturbation theory Resonance Tesseral harmonics Simple pendulum.
