G Small Eccentricity Theory

This appendix contains the equations for a theory that is valid for small eccentricities. First-order eccentricity terms are included for the terms that do not have J2si4037_e as a factor. In the terms that include J2si4038_e the eccentricity is set to zero, i.e., e=q1=q2=0si4039_e. The Σsi4040_e and Σ1 matrices do not simplify much by retaining only O
