Macsyma package for celestial mechanics

  1. Dec 7, 2007 #1

    I would like to make my hobby time somewhat easier.
    I would be interrested in a Macsyma package for celestial mechanics.
    I am first interrested by secular pertubation theory and using the Lagrange/Poisson bracket algebra.
    I have too little time and patience to develop such calculation by paper and pencil ... but I would enjoy a computer-algebra solution.

    As a first test of such a package, I would try to simply re-derive the well-known Lagrange perturbation equations for the elements of an orbit. A package restricted to this special case would already be useful.

    Thanks for your suggestions,
