Taboo Evolutionary Programming Approach to Optimal Transfer from Earth to Mars
Taboo evolutionary programming (TEP) is a novel evolutionary programming technique found extensive usage in the present decade. The algorithm can be implemented in many complex problems in science and technology to find the optimum solutions with constraints. In this paper, we studied a two-point boundary value problem such as Lambert conic determination to find out the optimum impulsive requirements for Earth to Mars transfer from a Geo stationary Transfer Orbit (GTO). The TEP results were compared with Genetic Algorithm (GA) and found that the TEP gives better results.
