Abstract : The primary objective of this report is to present the error analysis of the cislunar space craft. An associated secondary problem is the description of the geometry of the system by various equations derived. For certain geometrical situations, these equations become intdeterminate. The computer program in this report then treats these particular situations as special cases. (Author)
