Abstract:

Although it is commonly assumed that the Hohmann transfer is the optimum two-impulse transfer, an analytic proof has never been given. Ting Jnl. of Amer. Rock Soc, Vol. 301013-18, 1960 proved the conjecture for the nearly Hohmanntype orbit. An analytic proof of this conjecture in full generality is presented. Author
