Abstract : The research results obtained are in the general areas of the solution of large systems of differential equations, the regu arization of systems of differential equations applicable to mathematical physics, the theory of stable orbits, the motion of rigid bodies, the motion of the earth, the solution of two-point boundary value problems, the study of optimum aerodynamic shapes, and the numerical solution of the two-point boundary value problem associated with optimal reentry trajectory.
