A Survey of Symplectic and Collocation Integration Methods for Orbit Propagation

  title={A Survey of Symplectic and Collocation Integration Methods for Orbit Propagation},
  author={Brandon A. Jones and Rodney L. Anderson},
Demands on numerical integration algorithms for astrodynamics applications continue to increase. Common methods, like explicit Runge-Kutta, meet the orbit propagation needs of most scenarios, but more specialized scenarios require new techniques to meet both computational efficiency and accuracy needs. This paper provides an extensive survey on the application of symplectic and collocation methods to astrodynamics. Both of these methods benefit from relatively recent theoretical developments… CONTINUE READING
