Orbital Mechanics

The maths and physics of heavenly bodies. Lecture series.
29 Jul 2014 to 26 Sep 2014

Orbital mechanics examines the physics governing the behaviour of natural and man-made celestial objects. We will cover the theoretical behaviour of unperturbed (Kepler) orbits, and their mathematical representation using Newtonian mechanics. Transfers between different orbits will also be examined. The parameters needed to completely define an orbit in time and space, as well as the effect of perturbing forces on these parameters will be formulated, to derive Lagrange's planetary equations.

Lecturer: Virinchi Joglekar.

Venue: Noumenon Multiphysics.
