Discovering a celestial object using a non-parametric algorithm

We describe a method that does not use any orbital parameters, to arrive at the position and mass of a new celestial object, using high-precision orbital state vector data of the rest of the objects

A geometric method to locate Neptune

We develop a direct geometric method to determine the orbital parameters and mass of a planet, and we then apply the method to Neptune using high-precision data for the other planets in the solar
