A software method used to control the degree in a polynomial computation of Hansen coefficients

Abstract

The Hansen coefficients are widely used in the semi-analytical methods of elliptic orbital propagation. The generation of those coefficients, in computer software, was usually performed by means of recursion formulas, but this approach has some time penalties mainly if not all values are required. We developed a linear approach, which uses polynomials, and… (More)
