This MATLAB demonstrates halo orbit design in the Earth-Moon system using differential correction (dc). The code is "hard-wired" with the astrodynamic constants for the Earth-Moon circular-restricted, three-body problem and a Class I halo orbit about the L2 libration point.
script features
(1) initial guess using Richardson's algorithm
(2) solve system of nonlinear equations using fsolve
(3) graphics display of dc-refined halo orbit
The only input required from the user is the desired z-amplitude of the halo orbit in kilometers.
