Abstract : The error analysis of orbit transfer between two coplanar, elliptic orbits with a common focus, and together with that of reentry trajectory with aerodynamic forces for small deviations in the various elements, are presented. The orbit transfer is assumed to be accomplished by a single impulse. For the reentry trajectory the final orbit is supposed to pass through the limit of atmosphere. (Author)
