Our first objective is to reformulate the age-old problem of a satellite orbiting a primary (of a substantially bigger mass) by means of quaternion algebra.1 In subsequent chapters, this will facilitate a relatively simple construction of the problem’s iterative solution. Here we also review some details of constructing the unperturbed solution.
