This paper describes a new method of numerical integration and compares its efficiency in propagating orbits to existing techniques commonly used in astrodynamics. By using generalized Gaussian quadratures for bandlimited functions, the implicit Runge-Kutta scheme (a collocation method) allows us to use significantly fewer force function evaluations than other integrators. The new method computes the solution on a large time interval, leading to a different approach to force evaluation. In… CONTINUE READING
