Practical uncertainty quantification in orbital mechanics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The chapter provides an overview of methods to quantify uncertainty in orbital mechanics. It also provides an initial classification of these methods with particular attention to whether the quantification method requires a knowledge of the system model or not. For some methods the chapter provides applications examples and numerical comparisons on selected test cases.
