I pick up again by reviewing the solution to the problem assigned during Lecture 1. (The link will take you to a solution using C++ on GitHub). A few common coordinate systems and reference frames are introduced, orbital perturbations are introduced, and an example problem to be solved in Lecture 4 is given to the class to start on.
