Linearized Kepler problem
Pp. 1-17 (17)
Our first objective is to reformulate the age-old problem of a satellite orbiting a primary (of a substantially
bigger mass) by means of quaternion algebra.1 In subsequent chapters, this will facilitate a relatively simple
construction of the problem’s iterative solution.
Here we also review some details of constructing the unperturbed solution.
