    Hello everyone,
    I am currently programming a larger set of satellite related algorithms in
    Matlab. Included is a numerical integration method. The mathematics done in
    this context so far I have written down, as I am not aware of anyone else
    already has done so. A first version of the text is available at Suggestions and critics are
    very much welcome.
    I am returning to the list after several years. I am a german student of
    mechanical engineering and own an amateur radio licence (interest digital
    satellites). Mainly I am interested in training my mathematical and computer
    skills with celestial and other problems, and I am an amateur astronomer.
