Introduction
I graduated in Geophysics, Geochemistry and Remote Sensing with a DEA (i.e. Master of Advanced Studies) from Ecole des Mines de Paris / CTAMN (1982) [1st, GPA > 18/20]. I defended a D.Sc. in Geochemistry, Geo-Mathematics and Geo-Informatics (1986) at Nice University and INRIA (National Research Institute in Computer Science and Automation). I'm interested in Earth and Planetary Sciences, Astronomy, Software Engineering, Integration in Manufacturing, Finance and Trading, Value Investing.

Working Paper
Full-text available
Many methods have been devised to compute orbits and they fall into two main categories:geometric approaches and analytic ones. Geometric methods deliver orbital elements less certain but are useful when the length of the arc observed so far is just more or less significant of the entire trajectory to come. More and more often though, analytical me...
