Numerical Determination of the Approximate True Anomalies of the Quasicomplanar Asteroids Proximity - a New Variant

J. Lazović

A simpler method, as compared with the previous known ones, of the determination of the approximate true anomalies of proximity of two elliptic orbits is laid out for the case their minimum distance is small. These anomalies are the starting point of the solution of our equations for the proximity. The method is very efficient in the serial investigations of large number of pairs of minor planets orbits.
