In this orbit a certain fictitious planet is supposed to move according to the law of elliptic motion.

We know now that this apparent variation in the motion of the planets is simply due to the annual motion of the earth in its orbit round the sun.
"Astronomical Myths" by John F. Blake
The existing orbital motion at any moment implies, too, the preceding motion which it has, in a sense, inherited from the past.

The greater the sphere or orbit of a planet, the slower is its apparent motion.

In poetry:

The orbit too great for the sphere,
Speeds motion too fast or too slow;
Let poverty learn to dwell where
Fair Plentitude's hilltops are low.

It is better, therefore, to represent each superstar by a space density, corresponding to its orbital motion.
A Simple Dynamical Model for Omega Cen
The first definitive source identifications made using X-ray data alone were of X-ray pulsars – identified via periodic signals with sinusoidal period modulation due to orbital motion (Tananbaum et al. 1972).
Relativistic Astrophysics Explorer
Because the cyclotron features overwhelm the stellar components in the optical, this period was ascribed to the rotation of the white dwarf, which was presumed to be synchronized to the orbital motion.
New Low Accretion-Rate Magnetic Binary Systems and their Significance for the Evolution of Cataclysmic Variables
Only later, in subsection 2.3, we come to our original motivation from the orbital motion around a black hole and we employ the symmetry of the potential U .
Twin-peak quasiperiodic oscillations as an internal resonance
According to hydrodynamical calculations that include effects of the orbital motion, a dense S-shaped wind-wind collision region can be formed between the stars where the fast wind pushes the giant wind (e.g.

Recently, Prestwich et al. (2007) identified a period of 34.4 hr for IC 10 X-1 and established large radial velocity variations of the He ii λ4686 line, attributable to orbital motion of the WN star, con firming this system as a WR plus BH system.

Such effects would, for instance, clearly affect the pulsars orbital motion, allowing us to search for these effects and hence providing us with a unique precision strong-field test of gravity.

Since most our targets are within 50 pc and have a proper motion above 0.1′′ yr−1, astrometric parameters of bound systems are indeed not expected to vary much over a few years, except for some orbital motion in the closest systems (Fig. 1, left).

Dots represent our NACO observations and dotted lines depict the evolution expected for bound systems without significant orbital motion over the survey time span.
Probing the Impact of Stellar Duplicity on Planet Occurrence
In our case, the disk is cold, and the internal energy (Eint ) is very small compared to the kinetic energy of orbital motion, and is therefore a small fraction of the total energy E .
