PDF document and four MATLAB scripts that demonstrate how to solve the Earth orbit, interplanetary, and J2-perturbed form of Lambertâ€™s problem. Lambertâ€™s problem is concerned with the determination of an orbit that passes between two positions within a specified time-of-flight. This classic astrodynamic problem is also known as the orbital two-point boundary value problem (TPBVP) or the flyby and rendezvous problems.
MATLAB release
MATLAB 8.0 (R2012b)
Other requirements
The NLP solution of Lambert's problem requires the platform-specific version of SNOPT available at http://cam.ucsd.edu/~peg/Software.html.
