Item description for Theory of Orbits: Volume 2: Perturbative and Geometrical Methods (Astronomy and Astrophysics Library) by Dino Boccaletti...
Theory of Orbits treats celestial mechanics as well as stellar dynamics from the common point of view of orbit theory, making use of concepts and techniques from modern geometric mechanics. It starts with elementary Newtonian mechanics and ends with the dynamics of chaotic motion. The two volumes are meant for students in astronomy and physics alike. Prerequisite is a physicist's knowledge of calculus and differential geometry.
