Dissertation

Flow-informed Strategies for Trajectory Design and Analysis (45.5 Mb),
Cody Short, Purdue University, School of Aeronautics & Astronautics, May 2016.

This document covers the adaptation, development and extension of flow-based methods for use in astrodynamical design and analysis. Some dynamical systems background is included and several examples of flow-based approaches are given.

Masters Thesis

Lagrangian Coherent Structures in the Circular Restricted Three-body Problem (86.6 Mb),
Cody Short, Purdue University, School of Aeronautics & Astronautics, December 2010.

This document narrates the development of the principal dynamical characteristics and features of the circular restricted three-body problem as well as the flow-based notion of Lagrangian coherent structures. It also discusses some computational strategies, and gives a few example applications merging flow analysis and dynamical systems.

Senior Thesis

Characterization and Analysis of the SITe 1K CCD as Used in the Tenagra II Telescope (1.0 Mb),
Cody Short, Brigham Young University, Department of Physics & Astronomy, April 2007.

This document explores the particular characteristics of a specific charge-coupled device used in a remotely operated telescope. Statistical analysis of calibration frames is employed to establish the CCD response and identify any defects.
