Abstract

In this report we show that modern computer performances and state-of-the-art algebraic manipulator software are sufficiently developed to carry out our generalised analytical perturbative theory. This report addresses three technical aspects to develop a general perturbative theory and illustrates its power by applying it to investigate the inhomogeneous gravitational fields of asteroids.
