Recent advances in the research of advanced astrodynamics and its applications have created an unprecedented interest in the space community worldwide. Mathematical dynamics-based theory and powerful numerical simulations have been fused to develop orbits and mission design concepts for past, current, and future space missions

This volume bridges the gap between theoretical and applied astrodynamics by bringing together reports from prominent mathematicians, scientists, and engineers that discuss recent advances in the field. It is hoped that this volume will help to create an environment dedicated to cooperation and the sharing of knowledge within this community over the long term.

The conference for which this volume is the proceedings was truly international, bringing together scientists from China, Israel, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Russia, Spain, and the United States.

NOTE: Annals volumes are available for sale as individual books or as a journal.
