Three works by Samuel Herrick (1911–1974) who was a professor of astronomy at UCLA, founder of Institute of Navigation (1945), founder of the field astrodynamics, which applied the disciplines of celestial mechanics and mathematics to the problems of space trajectory research. His scientific career was concerned with procedures for improving orbit calculations for minor planets, other astronomical bodies, and later, space vehicles. He was a pioneer in the calculation of orbits of terrestrial artificial satellites twenty years before Sputnik I.
