The 2-body astrodynamics problem.
Predict the motion and position of two massive objects viewed as point particles that only interact with one another using classical mechanics. This problem is treated here as a classical central force problem.
Consider the frame defined by one particle. The position \((x, y)\) and the velocity \((v_x, v_y)\) of the other particle as a function of time can be described by the following set of equations:
with \(r = \sqrt{x(t)^2 + y(t)^2}\).
We use the initial conditions:
where \(e\) is the eccentricity of the particle trajectory.
The Jacobian of the right-hand side of this ODE is:
