Abstract
The problem studied in this paper is that of obtaining optimum trajectories, such as the one for effecting interception of a target following a known course above the sensible atmosphere, with minimum fuel consumption, or in minimum time c A procedure is given for determining the trajectory on a digital computer, and some conditions are given for the corresponding optimum trajectories,. The methods apply generally to problems wherein the range and time are not too great and the terminal velocity is irrelevant.
