Étude observationnelle, analytique et numérique des environnements planétaires : applications aux anneaux de Saturne et
d'Uranus et aux arcs de Neptune by
Bruno Sicardy(
)
1 edition published in 1988 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nous présentons dans cette thèse les résultats que nous avons obtenus sur les anneaux planétaires entre 1980 et 1987. Plusieurs techniques ont été employées (imagerie, occultation stellaire, approche analytique, simulation numérique). Elles ont permis en particulier de mesurer l'épaisseur équivalente des anneaux de Saturne, d'obtenir une haute résolution spatiale sur les anneaux d'Uranus, et de découvrir les arcs de Neptune. Des résultats sur les profils de température et la stucture turbulente des stratosphères d'Uranus et de Neptune sont également présentés. Les approches analytiques et numériques nous ont permis d'autre part de mieux préciser le rôle respectif des résonances de Lindblad, des corotations et des collisions inélastiques dans les anneaux planétaires. Notre code numérique permet en particulier de suivre l'évolution d'arcs de matière autour d'une planète, et pourrait expliquer les observations faites autour de Neptune

History of the lunar orbit by
Peter Goldreich(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Dynamic equations governing the evolution of the earthmoon system are derived and integrated back in time to determine its state at past epochs. The method is based on three time scales: short, determined by the revolution periods of the earth and moon around the sun and earth, respectively; intermediate, set by precessional motions of the moon's orbit plane and the earth's equator plane; and long, defined by the rate at which the frictional tides alter the state of the earthmoon system. The principle dynamic features of the sunearthmoon system in the absence of tidal forces are described by precessional equations. It is shown that for each planet there is a critical distance such that a satellite orbit lying well within the distance will maintain a nearly constant inclination to the planet's equator plane; the present earthmoon distance is far greater than the critical distance. Equations of motion are presented for the slow changes in conserved quantities produced by frictionally retarded tides, the principal changes being produced by the tides raised on the earth by the moon, and smaller changes by the tides raised on the earth by the sun. Fission and capture theories of lunar origin and formation in earth orbit are mentioned."

A Model for the 1612 MHz Masers in OHIR Stars (13)(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Shklovsky (1966) first suggested that OH masers might be pumped by the absorption of infrared radiation. Subsequently, the physics of the pump process was investigated by Litvak (1969) and by Litvak and Dickenson (1972). The present paper attempts to bring into sharper focus the essential features responsible for the inversion of the 1612 MHz transition in OHIR stars

Gauge Symmetry of the Nbody Problem in the HamiltonJacobi Approach(
)
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In most books the Delannay and Lagrange equations for the orbital elements are derived by the HamiltonJacobi method: one begins with the twobody Hamilton equations in spherical coordinates, performs a canonical transformation to the orbital elements, and obtains the Delannay system. A standard trick is then used to generalise the approach to the Nbody case. We reexamine this step and demonstrate that it contains an implicit condition which restricts the dynamics to a 9(N1)dimensional submanifold of the 12(N1)dimensional space spanned by the elements and their time derivatives. The tacit condition is equivalent to the constraint that Lagrange imposed by "hand" to remove the excessive freedom, when he was deriving his system of equations by variation of parameters. It is the condition of the orbital elements being osculating, i.e., of the instantaneous ellipse (or hyperbola) being always tangential to the physical velocity. Imposure of any supplementary condition different from the Lagrange constraint (but compatible with the equations of motion) is legitimate and will not alter the physical trajectory or velocity (though will alter the mathematical form of the planetary equations)

Gauge Freedom in the Nbody Problem of Celestial Mechanics(
)
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The goal of this paper is to demonstrate how the internal symmetry of the Nbody celestialmechanics problem can be exploited in orbit calculation. We start with summarizing research reported in (Efroimsky 2002, 2003; Newman & Efroimsky 2003; Efroimsky & Goldreich 2003) and develop its application to planetary equations in noninertial frames. This class of problems is treated by the variations ofconstraints method. As explained in the previous publications, Whenever a standard system of six planetary equations (in the Lagrange Delaunay, or other form) is employed for N objects, the trajectory resides on a 9(N1)1 dimensional submanifold of the 12(N1)dimensional space spanned by the orbital elements and their time derivatives. The freedom in choosing this submanifold reveals an internal symmetry inherent in the description of the trajectory by orbital elements. This freedom is analogous to the gauge invariance of electrodynamics. In traditional derivations of the planetary equations this freedom is removed by hand through the introduction of the Lagrange constraint, either explicitly (in the variationofconstraints methods or implicitly (in the HamiltonJacobi approach). This constraint imposes the condition (called osculation condition") that both the instantaneous position and velocity be fit by a Keplerlan ellipse (or hyperbola), i.e. that the instantaneous Keplerian ellipse (or hyperbola) be tangential to the trajectory. Imposition of any supplementary constraint different from that of Lagrange (but compatible with the equations of motion) would alter the mathematical form of the planetary equations without affecting the physical trajectory. However, for coordinatedependent perturbations, any gauge different from that of Lagrange makes the Delaunay system noncanonical
