OrbitalElementsTryConvertTimeFromPeriapsisToEccentricAnomaly Method

Tries to convert the time from periapsis passage to eccentric anomaly. The value returned is signed and monotonic even for periodic orbits.

Namespace:  AGI.Foundation.Coordinates
Assembly:  AGI.Foundation.Core (in AGI.Foundation.Core.dll) Version: 19.1.398.0 (19.1.398.0)
Syntax
public static bool TryConvertTimeFromPeriapsisToEccentricAnomaly(
	double timeFromPeriapsis,
	double radiusOfPeriapsis,
	double eccentricity,
	double gravitationalParameter,
	out double eccentricAnomaly
)

Parameters

timeFromPeriapsis
Type: SystemDouble
The time from periapsis passage (time).
radiusOfPeriapsis
Type: SystemDouble
The radius of periapsis (distance).
eccentricity
Type: SystemDouble
The eccentricity of the orbit.
gravitationalParameter
Type: SystemDouble
The gravitational parameter (distance cubed per time squared).
eccentricAnomaly
Type: SystemDouble
On return, the eccentric anomaly.

Return Value

Type: Boolean
if the eccentricity is negative or greater than or equal to one (indicating that the orbit is not closed) or radiusOfPeriapsis or gravitationalParameter is negative or zero or the iterative solution to Kepler's equation did not converge, otherwise .
