Abstract
In this paper we present new variables to describe the orbital motion of a celestial body in the Solar System. The motion is the solution of a perturbed two-body problem, where the main perturber can be the Sun or any planet. Two sets of generalized orbital elements are proposed for positive and negative values of the total energy, respectively. The former is the subject of the paper [1], while the latter is here presented for the first time. Numerical tests for perturbed geocentric motion and close encounters with a planet show that the new coordinates are very efficient when compared with both regularized and Cowell?s methods.
