Optimal Low-Thrust Limited-Power Transfers between Arbitrary Elliptic Coplanar OrbitsIn this work, a complete first order analytical solution, which includes the short periodic terms, for the problem of optimal low-thrust limited-power transfers between arbitrary elliptic coplanar orbits in a Newtonian central gravity field is obtained through Hamilton-Jacobi theory and a perturbation method based on Lie series.
