Point at which to add accelerations

greenspun.com : LUSENET : CU Statistical Orbit Determination : One Thread

I'm not quite sure if I'm adding delta-r and delta-rdot at the correct point in the algorithm. Should they be added just before the integration of each step?

Good question Rodney, you add the deterministic portion of the compesative acceleration (the accelerations contribution to the position and velocity) to the state AFTER integration of the state and phi.
