Celestial Mechanics: Notes and Work
by J.D. Mireles James
Publisher: Rutgers University 2007
Number of pages: 128
These are notes about some elementary topics in celestial mechanics. They focus primarily on numerical methods for studying n-body problems (especially the circular restricted three body problem), but they include enough background material and references so that they are readable outside the context of that course.

This book will bridge the gap between standard undergraduate treatments of celestial mechanics, which rarely advance beyond two-body orbit theory, and full-blown graduate treatments. A knowledge of elementary Newtonian mechanics is assumed.

The notions of Hamiltonians and Lagrangians are as vital today as they were a century ago and anyone who aspires to a career in astronomy should be exposed to them. There are also items unique to astronomy to which an aspirant should be exposed.
by Otto Dziobek - The Register Pub. Co.
This work is intended as an introduction to the special study of astronomy for the student of mathematics. The author has endeavored to produce a book which shall be so near the present state of the science as to include recent investigations ...
