Astrodynamics Applications of Dynamical Systems Theory

ASEN6519 - Fall 2007 Tuesday/Thursday 12:30 – 1:45 pm ECCR 1B08 Overview: The course will focus on applying dynamical systems tools to astrodynamics primarily within the context of the three-body problem. Some of the areas of concentration will include the computation of periodic orbits, differential correction, invariant manifolds, and stability techniques. The homework will emphasize the development of algorithms that incorporate these methods while learning about their mathematical basis. Research projects will be assigned in order to include current topics of interest. Grades will be based primarily on the homework and research projects. Instructors: Rodney L.
