Version 0.3.0 of the General Astrodynamics Library has
been released. It can be downloaded from the project
Updates in this release:
* ODE Integrator sub-library created.
Lunar position and velocity routine added to
sub-library. Routine implements LUNAR SOLUTION
ELP version ELP/MPP02
Solar position and velocity routine added to
Acceleration from spherical harmonics routine
Many routines updated for internal compatibilty
with the upcoming
official IAU SOFA C library. R-matrices have
reversed compared to GAL 0.2 and earlier.
Work will now be started on the classical keplerian
models, and atmosphere models.
The General Astrodynamics Library (GAL) is a numerical
library for C and C++ programmers. It is free software
under the GNU General Public License.
The library provides a wide range of astrodynamical
routines such as ephemerides, earth orientation, and orbit
propagation. There are over 225 functions in total with an
extensive test suite.
