Simple integrals for solving of Kepler's equation

  • W. Neutsch
  • E. Schrüfer


In this paper we derive integral representations for the solution of Kepler's equations for elliptic and hyperbolic orbits. The integrands consist merely of rational expressions of the integration variable and its exponential.
