orbits alternatives and similar packages
Based on the "Physics" category.
Alternatively, view orbits alternatives based on common mentions on social networks and blogs.
Do you think we are missing an alternative of orbits or a related project?
For my uncle Zbys who watched the planets and stars.
Types and functions for dealing with Kepler orbits.
The main data type is
Orbit, which describes the path of a body in orbit.
|a||Semi-major axis||Negative for hyperbolic orbits|
|b||Semi-minor axis||Negative for hyperbolic orbits|
|μ||Standard gravitational parameter|
|Ω||Longitude of the ascending node|
|t||Time since periapse|
|E||Eccentric anomaly||Only for elliptic orbits|
|H||Hyperbolic anomaly||Only for hyperbolic orbits|
|h||Specific angular momentum|
|ε||Specific orbital energy|
|εp||Specific potential energy|
|εk||Specific kinetic energy|
|v||Orbital speed or velocity|
|r||The radius to the orbiting body|
|φ||Flight path angle|
Note that in the Haskell source uppercase symbols such as Ω and M are written with a leading underscore.
This package makes use of the
units package to ensure that the
implementation is correct regarding units of measure.
