Remarks
Note that there are requirements for the input positions and times. In both methods the positions should be approximately co-planar (within a degree or two). The input positions should have large angular separation when using the positions only (Gibbs) solver, and small angular separation when using the positions and times (Herrick-Gibbs) solver. As outlined in "Fundamentals of Astrodynamics and Applications", below 1° in angular separation the Herrick-Gibbs method is recommended, and above 5° the Gibbs method is recommended.
