  abstract =     "Most techniques for solving dynamic optimisation
                 problems involve a series of gradient computations and
                 one-dimensional searches at some point in the
                 optimization process. A large class of problems,
                 however, does not possess the necessary smoothness
                 properties that such algorithms require for good
                 convergence. Even when smoothness conditions are met,
                 poor initial guesses at the solution often result in
                 convergence to local minima or even a lack of
                 convergence altogether. For such cases, genetic search
                 techniques can be used to obtain a solution. In this
                 paper, trajectory optimisation using genetic search
                 methods is illustrated by solving a complex, nonlinear
                 problem involving low-thrust orbit transfer.",
