A The Transformation Matrix Σ(t)si3774_e

This appendix presents the elements of the transformation matrix Σ(t)=[A(t)+A2B(t)]si3775_e, where A2=3J2Re2si3776_e. All the orbital elements are the elements of the chief; for brevity, the subscript “0” has been dropped. The following quantities will be needed:

r=p/(1+q1cosθ+q2sinθ)

si3777_e  (A.1)

p=a(1q12q22)

vt=μp(1+q1cosθ+q2sin ...
