Introduction: The challenge of science Hamiltonian mechanics Numerical and Analytical tools The stability problem The two-body problem The restricted three- body problem The Sitnicov problem Planetary problem Resonances Lunar theory Concluding remarks
Rudolf Dvorak, now serving at the Institute of Astronomy in Vienna, has gained research experience in planet research at international institutions including the Bureau des Longitudes in Paris. More than 130 publications provide proof. Dr. Christoph Lhotka is member of Rudolf Dvorak's workgroup, and an expert with the software Mathematica.
In summary, despite the omissions mentioned above, thisbook is an interesting addition to the subject because thepresentation is systematic and self-contained, and it contains avaluable material that would be useful to postgraduate studentsinterested in the field and also to some people working incelestial mechanics.
