A new determination of lunar orbital parameters, precession constant and tidal acceleration from LLR measurements
An analysis of Lunar Laser Ranging (LLR) observations from January 1972 until April 2001 has been performed, and a new solution for the lunar orbital motion and librations has been constructed thatExpand
Expressions for IAU 2000 precession quantities
A new precession-nutation model for the Celestial Intermediate Pole (CIP) was adopted by the IAU in 2000 (Resolution B1.6). The model, designated IAU 2000A, includes a nutation series for a non-rigidExpand
Numerical expressions for precession formulae and mean elements for the Moon and the planets.
We present, in this paper, a coherent set of formulae giving numerical expressions for precession quantities and mean elements of the Moon and the planets. First, using the notations of Lieske et al.Expand
Report of the International Astronomical Union Division I Working Group on Precession and the Ecliptic
The IAU Working Group on Precession and the Equinox looked at several solutions for replacing the precession part of the IAU 2000A precession–nutation model, which is not consistent with dynamicalExpand
Improvement of the IAU 2000 precession model
The IAU 2000 precession consists of the IAU 1976 ecliptic precession (Lieske et al. 1977, AA the model is recalled in Tables 3−5. Due to the strong dependence of the precession expressions on theExpand
The lunar ephemeris ELP 2000.
The lunar theory ELP revisited. Introduction of new planetary perturbations
On the basis of the semi-analytical theory ELP, a new solution has been built that makes use of the planetary perturbations MPP01 constructed by P. Bidart. This new solution, called ELP/MPP02, is anExpand
Expressions for the Celestial Intermediate Pole and Celestial Ephemeris Origin consistent with the IAU 2000A precession-nutation model
Expressions for the position of the Celestial Intermediate Pole (CIP) and the Celestial Ephemeris Origin (CEO) in the Geocentric Celestial Reference System (GCRS) have been computed using the IAUExpand
Planetary theories with the aid of the expansions of elliptic functions
For coplanar circular orbits, the mutual perturbations between two bodies can be expressed in term of the argument of Jacobian elliptic functions instead of the difference of the mean longitudes. ForExpand
