Orbital Mechanics and Formation Flying: A Digital Control Perspective (Woodhead Publishing in Mechanical Engineering) (English Edition)
Aimed at students, faculty and professionals in the aerospace field, this book provides practical information on the development, analysis, and control of a single and/or multiple spacecraft in space. This book is divided into two major sections: single and multiple satellite motion. The first section analyses the orbital mechanics, orbital perturbations, and attitude dynamics of a single satellite around the Earth. Using the knowledge of a single satellite motion, the translation of a group of satellites called formation flying or constellation is explained. Formation flying has been one of the main research topics over the last few years and this book explains different control approaches to control the satellite attitude motion and/or to maintain the constellation together. The control schemes are explained in the discrete domain such that it can be easily implemented on the computer on board the satellite. The key objective of this book is to show the reader the practical and the implementation process in the discrete domain.
- Explains the orbital motion and principal perturbations affecting the satellite
- Uses the Ares V rocket as an example to explain the attitude motion of a space vehicle
- Presents the practical approach for different control actuators that can be used in a satellite

Il faut que tout cede à cette passion violente ; le poison, le fer, les droits de la nature violés (ce
Neurogenic Heart Lesions (English Edition)
Neurogenic Heart Lesions reviews the main publications concerned with the problem of neurogenic lesions of the heart. The book describes the methods for producing experimental neurogenic lesions, as well as the pharmacological analysis of the participation of the sympathetic nervous system and its transmitters in the development of neurogenic lesions of the myocardium. The text also discusses the changes in energy metabolism and in functional conditions of the myocardium caused by neurogenic lesions; and the pharmacoprophylaxis and pharmacotherapy of the biochemical changes produced by neurogenic lesions of the myocardium. Pharmacologists, pathologists, and other clinicians and physicians concerned with the new achievements in the field of cardiology will find the book invaluable.Readmore …
