Mathematical Theories of Planetary Motions
by Otto Dziobek
Publisher: The Register Pub. Co. 1892
Number of pages: 314
This work is intended not merely as an introduction to the special study of astronomy, but rather for the student of mathematics who desires an insight into the creations of his masters in this field. The author has endeavored to meet this need and at the same time to produce a book which shall be so near the present state of the science as to include recent investigations and to indicate unsettled questions.

The purpose of this volume is the development of methods for the calculation of the general orbit of a planet. We attempted to anticipate the difficulties which arise, by setting forth the various devices which may be utilized when needed.

These are notes about some elementary topics in celestial mechanics. They focus primarily on numerical methods for studying n-body problems, but they include enough background material so that they are readable outside the context of that course.

This is an excellent textbook covering not only celestial mechanics, but a wide range of astrophysics topics. The coverage and detail this book deals with is by no means introductory, and is written for the college level student in mathematics.
