Abstract

The aim of this paper is to present the principal features of a new evaluation of the direct perturbations of the planets on the Moon’s motion. Using the method already published in Celestial Mechanics (Standaert, 1980), we compute “a first-order theory” aiming at an accuracy of the order of the meter for all periodic terms of period less than 3 500 years.
