Fundamentals of Astrodynamics, 4th Edition by David Vallado

Discover Prime Book Box for Kids. While the first edition was an exceptionally useful and popular book throughout the community, there are a number of reasons why the second edition will be even more so. What sets this book apart is that nearly all of the theoretical mathematics is followed by discussions of practical applications implemented in tested Appendix B Modeling the Atmosphere.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Asstrodynamics account.


Mathematical Fundamentals Appendix D: This makes the second edition an even more valuable text and superb reference. Overall I believe that Vallado put back “Fun” in “Fundamentals”.

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.

Emad added it May 19, Get to Know Us. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. There are many reworked examples and derivations. Vallado’s book is just such a compendium, integrating two-body dynamics with extensive perturbation methods and real-world applications while consolidating recent literature about coordinates and fundamental concepts.

Share your thoughts with other customers. However, this is an excellent book for practical numerical analysis of orbits and trajectories.

Coordinate and Time Systems. While this may be distracting at times, most of the needed information is there – few astrodynamics textbooks can claim to be as complete.
