Does anyone know what a coefficient of order unity is? I'm reading a journal paper and it gives the formula

[tex]P_{KOZ} \simeq P_1 \left( {\frac{{m_0 + m_1 }}{{m_2 }}} \right)\left( {\frac{{a_2 }}{{a_1 }}} \right)^3 \left( {1 - e_2^2 } \right)^{3/2} [/tex]

and then it says

It's on page 6 of this paper : http://www.journals.uchicago.edu/ApJ/journal/issues/ApJ/v535n1/40691/406 [Broken] 91.web.pdf

and then it says

.This expression should be multiplied by a coefficient of order unity that can be obtained using Weierstrass's zeta function
