Theoretical background -- Angular momentum and areal velocity -- Dynamical derivation of Kepler's first law -- Kepler's third law -- A hodograph of the velocity vector for Keplerian motion -- Another derivation of Kepler's first law -- A family of orbits with equal energies and a common initial point -- Relative orbital motion -- The gravitational field of a distorted planet -- The two-body problem -- Exact particular solutions to the three-body problem -- The non-restricted three-body problem -- The sphere of gravitational action -- The oceanic tides

This book, together with the accompanying software, is written for a wide range of graduate and undergraduate students studying various courses in physics and astronomy. The primary aim of the book is the understanding of the foundations of classical and modern physics, while their application to celestial mechanics is used to illustrate these concepts. The simulation programs create vivid and lasting impressions of the investigated phenomena, and provide students and their instructors with a powerful tool to explore basic concepts that are difficult to study and teach in an abstract conventional manner.
