The international journal Celestial Mechanics and Dynamical Astronomy (CM&DA) is concerned with the broad topic of celestial mechanics and its applications, as well as with peripheral disciplines. It is the journal of record in its field and is an indispensable component of reference libraries on Dynamical Astronomy, Astrodynamics and Dynamical Systems.

  • Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2019 with a dedicated article collection
  • Offers wide-ranging coverage of celestial mechanics and related fields
  • Covers the mathematical, physical and computational aspects of planetary theory, lunar theory and more
  • A valuable reference on a growing topic
  • Most authors reported that they would publish in the journal again

  • Call for papers: EDUCATION IN THE AUTOMATED AGE

    We now find ourselves in what Mark Andrejevic (2019) describes as an ‘era of pervasive automation’ – where masses of digital data are coming together with algorithmic processing and machine learning to drive powerful automated decision making systems that increasingly shape the boundaries of everyday life. This special issue explores the diverse implications that these automations have for education – from the lived experiences of teaching and learning within automated classrooms, through to the changing nature of educational governance.

  • Call for papers: “Main Belt Dynamics”

    The journal Celestial Mechanics and Dynamical Astronomy is planning to publish a thematic collection of papers on MAIN BELT DYNAMICS, which hopes to include original articles from leading researchers in the field. We invite all authors to submit a paper.

  • CM&DA welcomes new editors

    We are happy to announce the appointment of four new Associate Editors of Celestial Mechanics and Dynamical Astronomy: Xiyun Hou, Àngel Jorba, Christoph Lhotka, and Massimilano Vasile.

  • Call for papers: “Exoplanet Dynamics”

    The journal Celestial Mechanics and Dynamical Astronomy is planning to publish a thematic collection of papers on EXOPLANET DYNAMICS, which hopes to include original articles from leading researchers in the field. We invite all authors to submit a paper.
