A MATLAB Script for Optimal Single Impulse De-orbit from Earth Orbits

optimal impulsive maneuver required to de-orbit a spacecraft in a circular or elliptical Earth orbit

File Information
Description

This document describes a MATLAB script named deorbit_snopt that can be used to compute the optimal impulsive maneuver required to de-orbit a spacecraft in a circular or elliptical Earth orbit. The user provides the classical orbital elements of the initial orbit along with geodetic altitude and relative flight path angle targets at the entry interface (EI).

MATLAB release MATLAB 7.13 (R2011b)
Other requirements This script uses the SNOPT nonlinear programming algorithm to solve this orbital mechanics problem. MATLAB versions of SNOPT can be found at Professor Philip Gillâ€™s web site which is located at http://scicomp.ucsd.edu/~peg/.

I have been running the submission using snopt matlab but it is showing the error "Undefined function or method 'snopt' for input arguments of type 'double'"
Undefined function or method 'julian' for input arguments of type 'double'.

Error in ==> readdata at 110
jdate0 = julian(month, day, year);

Error in ==> deorbit_snopt at 64
