Using the Sundberg-Cooper rheology, we apply several improvements to the tidal evolution of short-period, rocky exoplanets and the early history of Pluto-Charon under the simplifying assumption of homogeneous bodies. By including higher-order eccentricity terms (up to and including e^20), we find divergences from the traditionally used e^2 truncation starting around ...
