Abstract

We consider the problem of constructing an optimal cyclogram for the small-thrust rocket motors that govern the descent of a spacecraft to earth or other orbital maneuvers. The problem is solved by the perturbation method, the perturbation in this case being the ratio of the thrust of the motor to the weight of the spacecraft.
