Matrix Inverse By Gauss Jordan Method: Easy Way

In orbital mechanics, Gauss's method is used for preliminary orbit determination from at least three observations of the orbiting body of interest at three different times. The required information are the times of observations, the position vectors of the observation points, the direction cosine vector of the orbiting body from the observation points and general physical data.
