The international journal Celestial Mechanics and Dynamical Astronomy is concerned with the broad topic of celestial mechanics and its applications, as well as with peripheral fields. The papers published in Celestial Mechanics and Dynamical Astronomy include treatments of the mathematical, physical and computational aspects of planetary theory, lunar theory, general and special perturbation theory, ephemerides, resonance theory, geodesy of the Earth and the planets, dynamics, the 3-body problem, the n-body problem, space mechanics, ring systems, galactic dynamics, reference frames, time, relativity, nongravitational forces, computer methods, computer languages for analytical developments, and database management. Celestial Mechanics and Dynamical Astronomy is the journal of record in its field and is an indispensable component of reference libraries on Dynamical Astronomy, Astrodynamics and Dynamical Systems.
