PDF document and four MATLAB scripts that demonstrate how to solve the Earth orbit, interplanetary, and J2-perturbed form of Lambert’s problem. Lambert’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.
