Abstract de la publi numéro 7363
Here, we investigate an orbital transfer from a low Earth orbit to the
geostationnary one where the considered criterion to maximize is
the final mass. We seek to observe numerically the connections
between the impulse transfer and the low-thrust one after giving two
computational methods in each cases. We see that the links are very
strong and that the impulse transfer can be viewed as the limit of the
low-thrust transfer when its number of revolutions increases.
