**Celestial Mechanics: Notes and Work**

by J.D. Mireles James

**Publisher**: Rutgers University 2007**Number of pages**: 128

**Description**:

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