I'm seeking for a good textbook on numerical celestial mechanics. My current level of proficiency is:

1- understanding of classical mechanics is at the level of Goldstein's textbook

2- understanding of numerical analysis is at the level that I can easily pick up an algorithm from the "numerical recipes" and rewrite it in my preferred language(s)

Virtually all of the books I've seen so far do not fit my requirements for one or more of the following reasons:

1- too introductory (e.g., start explaining Newton's laws)

2- no numerical approach

3- focused on other applications (e.g., satellite control)

Of course, a cheap textbook would be appreciated ... ;-)
