Workshop on introduction to dynamical systems methods for mission design
This workshop is designed to provide an introduction to recent methods to design orbits for spacecraft which use less fuel by taking advantage of natural gravitational forces. The analysis of such missions requires a deep understanding of the structure of phase space.
The workshop is part of a SURP grant by JPL Graduate and undergraduate students are encouraged to attend.
Some information on the workshop is available at: http://people.math.gatech.edu/~rll6/JPL/jpl.html
