The Nature of the Critical Inclinations in Artificial Satellite Theory
Mainfolds of orbits with stationary perigees are intrinsic features of the averaged main problem in aritifical satellite theory: they bifurcate off the manifold of circular orbits at the points where stability flips to instability and vice-versa.

Phys. 5, 121–130(1974).The equivalent of Meyer’s reduction in quantum physics being the quantization procedure of Kirillov, Souriau, and Kostant, text-books in physics have taken to designate the classical construction as the KSK-reduction.Google Scholar

Moses, in the Proceedings of the EUROSAM Conference ACM SIGSAM Bulletin, August 1974. A good introduction to the use of MACSYMA in nonlinear mechanics is to be found in R.H. Rand.

As an illustration of its application to artificial satellite theory, see E. Zeis, A Computerized Algebraic Utility for the Construction of Non Singular Satellite Theory, M.S.
