Part of the Mathematics in Industry book series (MATHINDUSTRY, volume 12)

The fields of Astrodynamics and Space Geodesy research are experiencing continuous growth. Advancements in science and technology are enabling missions with much more challenging goals. In response, many new techniques have been introduced to solve these demanding new mission design problems with a high precision.
