The chaotic behaviour observed when Newton's method is used to solve Kepler's equation is analysed using methods borrowed from chaos theory. The result of the analysis is compared with previous results. A sufficient condition for convergence of a given iterative function is presented and yields ranges of eccentricity and mean anomaly such that Newton's method applied to Kepler's equation will converge from an initial guess of π. 
The dynamics of Kepler equation
It is well known that Kepler?s equation can be solved by means of an iterative method defined, in a natural way, from the equation itself. This method yields to the unique solution if the
Improved First Estimates to the Solution of Kepler's Equation
The manuscripts provides a novel starting guess for the solution of Kepler's equation for unknown eccentric anomaly E given the eccentricity e and the mean anomaly M of an elliptical orbit.
An efficient code to solve the Kepler equation. Elliptic case
A new approach for solving Kepler equation for elliptical orbits is developed in this paper. This new approach takes advantage of the very good behaviour of the modified Newton?Raphson method when
Padé Approximation to the Solution of the Elliptical Kepler Equation
In orbital mechanics, the elliptical Kepler equation is a basic nonlinear equation which determines the eccentric anomaly of a planet orbiting the Sun. In this paper, Kepler’s equation has been
Global convergence of Newton’s method on an interval
Global convergence of the method is considered in the strong sense of convergence for any initial value in I and any feasible right-hand side and the class of functions for which the method converges globally is characterized.

In this thesis we join two exciting areas such as astronomy, consisting of Kepler's equation, and numerical analysis, represented by iterative methods of solving equations. We investigate the
Properties of Bessel Function Solution to Kepler’s Equation with Application to Opposition and Conjunction of Earth–Mars

Chaotic Behavior in the Real Dynamics of a One Parameter Family of Functions
The chaotic behavior in the real dynamics of a one parameter family of nonlinear functions is studied in the present paper. For this purpose, the function f_λ(x)=λ=xe^x /( x - 1) λ > 0, x ∈ R \ {1}


The Convergence of Newton–Raphson Iteration with Kepler's Equation
Conway (Celest. Mech. 39, 199–211, 1986) drew attention to the circumstance that when the Newton–Raphson algorithm is applied to Kepler's equation for very high eccentricities there are certain
An improved algorithm due to laguerre for the solution of Kepler's equation
A root-finding method due to Laguerre (1834–1886) is applied to the solution of the Kepler problem. The speed of convergence of this method is compared with that of Newton's method and several
Newton’s Algorithm and Chaotic Dynamical Systems
We show how Newton’s method for finding the roots of a real function f leads to chaotic dynamics (infinitely many periodic points and positive topological entropy) for a large class of functions f.
