4.7 Equations of Relative Motion under the Influence of J2si1049_e

The equations of motion of a satellite under the influence of gravitational and thrust perturbations can be written in frame si1050_e as (see our discussion of orbital perturbations in Section 2.5)

r̈=rV+u

si1051_e  (4.89)

where rsi1052_e is the position vector, V=UR is the total gravitational potential (the nominal ...
