orbit

For my uncle Zbys who watched the planets and stars.


Types and functions for dealing with Kepler orbits.

The main data type is Orbit, which describes the path of a body in orbit.

Nomenclature

| Symbol | Meaning | Notes | |--------|----------------------------------|--------------------------------| | a | Semi-major axis | Negative for hyperbolic orbits | | b | Semi-minor axis | Negative for hyperbolic orbits | | e | Eccentricity | | | q | Periapsis | | | i | Inclination | | | μ | Standard gravitational parameter | | | Ω | Longitude of the ascending node | | | l | Semi-latus Rectum | | | n | Mean motion | | | p | Period | | | t | Time since periapse | | | M | Mean anomaly | | | E | Eccentric anomaly | Only for elliptic orbits | | ν | True anomaly | |

Note that in the Haskell source uppercase symbols such as Ω and M are written with a leading underscore.

Implementation

This package makes use of the units package to ensure that the implementation is correct regarding units of measure.
