Kevin Ferret marked it as to-read Jul 29, However, this is an excellent book for practical numerical analysis of orbits and trajectories. Notation is also confusing in fundametals of symbol choice.

Chapter 1 of “The Logic of Microspace”. The increased power of microcomputers has changed the study of perturbations perhaps more than any other subfield of astrodynamics, but students and practitioners still need a compendium of well-documented algorithms to use that power.

Vineet rated it it was amazing Jul 05, Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty. Masood marked it as to-read Mar 22, There is an improved and expanded discussion of coordinate systems, orbit determination, and differential correction.

Garry Hall rated it it was amazing Feb 21, Woflmao marked it as to-read Aug 19, It properly emphasizes that modern astrodynamics is now practiced on the computer, combining numerical methods with classical celestial mechanics to provide dozens of algorithms suitable for machine solution.


Craigm rated it really liked it Mar 07, Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1. The only thing that I felt that this book lacked was a detailed explanation of the JPL ephemeris, ballistic capture trajectories, and trajectory optimization.

Discover Prime Book Box for Kids. Modern Astrodynamics Limited preview – The integration of these into a treatment of traditional development of Keplerian motion, perturbed motion, and orbital determination represents a significant accomplishment –John L. Melton, Pennsylvania State University Vallado is an excellent book on the “real world” use of astrodynamics in space missions.

I have since ended up throwing this book into the pit out back where I accumulate wasteful material for future burning. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Being so broad in scope, the reader is sometimes required to go from chapter to chapter to get the big picture or gather all the details.

If astrodynamics is your thing…you will be thanking him too. Andrewcooper added it Mar 07, There was a problem filtering reviews right now.

For example, the book includes a compendium of algorithms that allow students and professionals to determine orbits with high precision.

Ciccio marked it as to-read Jan 03, It is not only the perfect textbook, but a superb reference book that will be used over and over again in practical astrodynamics.


Included is also a lot of easy to use algorithms, which makes applying astrodynamice concepts in programming really simple. Want to Read saving…. An engineer or computer programmer who needs to solve problems in this field will immediately discover that this title serves to fill a large void in the academic literature on vaklado astrodynamics.

While the first edition was an exceptionally useful and popular book throughout the community, there are a number of reasons why the second edition will be even more so.

Fundamentals of Astrodynamics and Applications, 4th ed. by David A. Vallado

While this may be distracting at times, most of the needed information is there – few astrodynamics textbooks can claim to be as complete. The author cites many references and alternative methods to expand understanding of the topics discussed. There’s a problem loading this menu right now. Extended to pages, including a new chapter on interplanetary missions, there are ground illumination calculations, Moon rise and set data, and astroodynamics listing of relevant Internet sites.

Overall I believe that Vallado put back “Fun” in “Fundamentals”.
