Abstract:

An improved method to control error in the classical Runge-Kutta numerical integration scheme has been uncovered. The method is readily adaptable to the solutions of the differential equations of motion of an unguided rocket. This report presents the theoretical aspects behind this method and an evaluation of its efficiency.
