Abstract
A new code to solve the Kepler equation for elliptic and hyperbolic orbits has been developed. The motivation of the study is the determination of an appropriate seed to initialize the numerical method, considering the optimization already tested of the well known Newton-Raphson method. To do that, we take advantage of the full potential of the symbolic manipulators. The final algorithm is stable, reliable and solves successfully the solution of the Kepler equation in the singular corner (M << 1 and e ~ 1).
