Figure 2

The change rates in a, e, and i as a function of i for e=0.1, and ω=π/2 in the same disk as Figure 1. Analytic formulae for low i (gray dotted curves), given by Equations (11) to (13), and those for high i (gray dashed curves), given by Equations (30) to (32), are in good agreement with the results of orbital integration (open circles) for iH/a and iH/a, respectively. The combined formulae (solid curves), given by Equations (30) to (38), represent within a factor of 1.5.
