Moon-Earth distances and interactions
I'm trying to calculate the distance between earth and moon and how the other planets and sun interfere in this system.
I would like to know how can I solve this. What equations should I use?
Will this also make me able to know how far the moon is "going away" from us?

Probably not exactly what you're looking for, but this article explains briefly part of the reason why the moon is 'moving away' from us.

I think I know how these interactions happen. I really don't know where to start doing the calculations...
I'm ending my course in Physics, but it isn't pure physics since it has a minor in Computer Science, so I don't have many of the subjects that could be of help with this matter.
I have to do a computer program that simulates the orbits and as time passes by the moon "getting away"...
My problem for now is not the programming part, but the calculations I have to do and formulas I have to put there....
