Abstract The program GLE2000 solves the equations of motion for the pointmasses of planets, Earth, Moon and Sun in the first post-Newtonian approximation by numerical integration. Considered are also: the action of five minor planets, the dynamics of extended bodies and tidal friction. The program is able to reproduce the internationally accepted reference ephemeris DE200 to a high precision. Title of program: GLE2000 Catalogue Id: ABHM_v1_0 Nature of problem Within the framework of General Relativity (post - Newtonian approximation) the equations of motion for the pointmasses of the Planets, Earth, Moon and Sun are solved numerically. Considering Earth and Moon as extended bodies we add Newtonian accelerations due to figure effects. Initial conditions and constants are taken from the ephemerides DE118 created by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data ABHM_v1_0; GLE2000; 10.1016/0010-4655(89)90041-6 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2019)
