ModifiedKeplerianElements Class

Modified Keplerian orbital elements. These are the same as the Classical/Keplerian orbital elements except that Radius of Periapsis and the inverse of Semimajor Axis are used instead of Semimajor Axis and Eccentricity. This is useful because the Radius of Periapsis is well defined for all but rectilinear orbits. For Eccentricity, use ComputeEccentricity.

All units are SI unless indicated otherwise. For more information see the Units topic.
