An Introduction to Celestial MechanicsAn Introduction to Celestial Mechanics
by Richard Fitzpatrick - The University of Texas at Austin , 2011
This book will bridge the gap between standard undergraduate treatments of celestial mechanics, which rarely advance beyond two-body orbit theory, and full-blown graduate treatments. A knowledge of elementary Newtonian mechanics is assumed.

Planetary TheoryPlanetary Theory
by Ernest Brown, Clarence Shook - Cambridge University Press , 1933
The purpose of this volume is the development of methods for the calculation of the general orbit of a planet. We attempted to anticipate the difficulties which arise, by setting forth the various devices which may be utilized when needed.

The Foundations of Celestial MechanicsThe Foundations of Celestial Mechanics
by George W. Collins, II - Pachart Pub House , 2004
The notions of Hamiltonians and Lagrangians are as vital today as they were a century ago and anyone who aspires to a career in astronomy should be exposed to them. There are also items unique to astronomy to which an aspirant should be exposed.

Celestial Mechanics: Notes and WorkCelestial Mechanics: Notes and Work
by J.D. Mireles James - Rutgers University , 2007
These are notes about some elementary topics in celestial mechanics. They focus primarily on numerical methods for studying n-body problems, but they include enough background material so that they are readable outside the context of that course.
