The construction of a seventh-order Jupiter-Saturn analytical theory

Part II: Extended outline to O(m 7)

  • 19 Accesses

  • 1 Citations


We extend the construction of the Jupiter-Saturn theory to include all the terms up to the seventh order in the masses. The Hori-Lie transformation technique is employed. The Jacobian coordinates are adopted and the theory is expressed in terms of the canonical non-singular variables of H. Poincaré.
