A Method of Integrating the Equations of Motion in Special Coordinates and the Elimination of a Discontinuity in the Theory of the Motion of Periodic Comet Wolf

  • E. I. Kazimirchak-Polonskaya (a1)

Abstract

From the integration formulae of Numerov and Subbotin we have developed and programmed for an electronic computer a particular method for integrating the differential equations of cometary motion in special rectangular coordinates, with a variable step and allowing for all planetary perturbations and nongravitational effects over a time interval of 400 yr. Application of this method and our set of programmes to the investigation of the motion of P/Wolf permits us to eliminate the discontinuity that has hitherto existed in the theory on account of the comet's close approach to Jupiter in 1922.
