PDF document and a MATLAB script called pprop_e2m that can be used to numerically integrate the geocentric and heliocentric orbital equations of motion of an Earth to Mars interplanetary trajectory. This scientific simulation begins at a user-defined epoch and state vector somewhere within the Earth’s sphere-of-influence (SOI) and ends at (1) closest approach to Mars, (2) a user-defined Mars-centered (areocentric) distance, or (3) at a user-defined final epoch.
