Chaotic Attitude Tumbling of Satellite in Magnetic Field

Rashmi Bhardwaj and Parsan Kaur

Abstract

In this study, the half width of the chaotic separatrix has been estimated by chrikov's criterion. Through surface of section method, it has been observed that the magnetic torque parameter, the eccentricity of the orbit and the mass distribution parameter play an important in changing the regular motion into chaotic one.
