Kepler's Equation for Parabolic and Near-Parabolic Orbits

Description:Solves Kepler’s equation for heliocentric parabolic and near-parabolic orbits. It is based on the numerical method described in Chapter 4 of "Astronomy on the Personal Computer" by Oliver Montenbruck and Thomas Pfleger. This algorithm uses a modified form of Barker’s equation and Stumpff functions to solve this problem.
