Abstract

Time evolution of the meteoroid's orbit under the action of the solar electromagnetic radiation is discussed in terms of perihelion and aphelion distances. Perturbation equations for secular changes of orbital elements are written for the most simple case. Initial conditions are formulated for the obtained system of perturbation equations and simple example is presented.
