The thesis should contain a short summary of the research with its goals, research methods and results. 

The text size is one-two pages of MS Word document (the illustrations, if necessary, are required in jpg or gif). The page parameters are as follows: А4 page with 2.5 сm all sides margin, Times New Roman-12 pt; 1.25 сm indent, single line spacing, and width alignment.

Files should be entitled as surname of the first author_session number (e.g. klimanov_1.doc).  

The first line is the UDC number, the report name is printed in one and a half spaces in capital bold letters; after one and a half spaces, the surname and initials of the authors are printed (the work leader must be indicated last in the list of co-authors); after one and a half spaces, the name of the university, organization, city (in italics, e-mail of the first author is written; after 2 intervals - the text of the report.

BE SURE to specify the list of sources used and the e-mail of the first author.

Formulating and solving spacecraft orientation problem it is convenient to introduce the right-handed orthogonal coordinate system (trihedron) with a center in a given point, as a rule, in an object’s center of mass. The following methods of orientation matrix parameterization became a frequent practice in solving an orientation problem:

-  parameterization applying Krylow, Euler angles, etc.;

-   parameterization using quaternions.
