Abstract:

Numerical integration methods for solution of the system of differential equations found in ballistic rocket trajectory programs are discussed. The general discussion entails the explicit formulas of Runge-Kutta and predictor-corrector methods and their errors, and a brief description of other methods that could be employed.
