Keywords: Earth's gravitational field, Optimum trajectory


Optimum trajectory with specified transfer angle between two terminals in an inverse square gravitational field is investigated, criterion of optimization being minimum velocity increment at the initial terminal. Results are numerically illustrated for two orbits in Earth's gravitational field.
