The solution of Kepler's equation, I
Methods of iteration are discussed in relation to Kepler's equation, and various initial ‘guesses’ are considered, with possible strategies for choosing them. Several of these are compared; the
The solution of Kepler's equation, II
Starting values for the iterative solution of Kepler's equation are considered for hyperbolic orbits, and for generalized versions of the equation, including the use of universal variables.
