What sets this book apart is that nearly all of the theoretical mathematics is followed by discussions of practical applications implemented in tested software routines available to readers at no cost.
It is true it is not a book for beginners. He has also worked as a principal engineer with Raytheon in Denver, Colorado.
Fundamentals of Astrodynamics, 4th Edition by David Vallado
A good book summarizing the field. I find this book to be excellent from the point of view of the practicing engieneer.
Paul Friz rated it really liked it Oct 13, Vineet rated aetrodynamics it was amazing Jul 05, Paperbackpages. Being a 1st edition, it has a few mistakes.
There is a couple of noticeable equation typos and some numerical errors in a few of the many examples the programmer will quickly discover these. All too frequently in derivations, a formula is referenced that is ahead in the text, or in a future chapter. The book has quite a few typos but an errata is available on the publisher’s website.

Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. Spencer, Associate Editor, AIAA Journal of Spacecraft and Rockets Fundamenhals book contains a large collection of information pertaining to operational systems and qualitative insights gleaned from recent applications. There are many reworked examples and derivations.
While this may be distracting at times, astrodyamics of the needed information is there – few astrodynamics textbooks can claim to be as complete. What sets this book apart is that nearly all of the theoretical mathematics is followed by discussions of practical applications implemented in tested software routines.

AVVairavan marked it as to-read Mar 01, The only thing that I felt that this book lacked was a detailed explanation of the JPL ephemeris, ballistic capture trajectories, and trajectory optimization.
The problems posed at the end of fundamentaos chapter aztrodynamics a useful range of difficulty, appropriate for use in a senior or graduate level course. It includes detailed coverage of reference frames, numerical prorogation methods, perturbing forces including spherical-harmonic representations of gravity models, dynamical time, line-of-sight and line-of-light analysis, and other important topics and was extremely helpful when I was designing “frozen” orbits around the moon.
However, this is an excellent book for practical numerical analysis of orbits and trajectories.
