Title Exact Thomas Precession Related Solutions of the Inertial Navigation Equations
Author(s) V.F. Chub (Korolev Rocket and Space Corporation "Energia," Lenina4A, Korolev, Moscow Oblast, 141070 Russia,
Abstract The aim of the present paper is to give a survey of those exact solutions of relativistic inertial navigation equations which are directly or indirectly related to Thomas precession. Various cases of uniform circular motion of an object in gravity-free space close to motion with inertial or orbital attitude are considered.
