Celestial Mechanics: Notes and Work
by

Publisher: Rutgers University
Number of pages: 128

Description:
These are notes about some elementary topics in celestial mechanics. They focus primarily on numerical methods for studying n-body problems (especially the circular restricted three body problem), but they include enough background material and references so that they are readable outside the context of that course.
