**Hyperbolic motion**— In geometry, a hyperbolic motion is a mapping of a model of hyperbolic geometry that preserves the distance measure in the model. Such a mapping is analogous to congruences of Euclidean geometry which are compositions of rotations and… …42

**Mean motion**— Mean motion, , is a measure of how fast a satellite progresses around its elliptical orbit. Unless the orbit is circular, the mean motion is only an average value, and does not represent the instantaneous angular rate. In the databases of… …43
