A Toolbox for Nonlinear Dynamics
Using the main problem of artificial satellite theory as an illustration, we review several developments which have had a significant impact on research in nonlinear dynamics. On the mathematical front, we point to the ...
The Phase Space Portrait of an Integrable Dynamical System
For an integrable dynamical system with one degree of freedom, "painting" the integral over the phase space proves to be very effective for uncovering the global flow down to minute details. Applied to the main problem ...
Deterministic Studies of Debris Hazards with Parallel Processors
(European Space Agency, 1993-04-05)
A new generation of parallel processing computers makes possible the ability to propagate all objects in the space surveillance catalog with simulated objects, and detect close approaches. With this capability, it is ...
Parallel Computing for Space Surveillance
(MIT Lincoln Laboratory, 1992)
This paper reports on an application of massively parallel processors to multiple satellite propagation and the calculation of miss distances between objects (COMBO). Unlike serial computations, we do not pre-filter the ...
