Oh no!!!! :)
Anyway, I suspect it's the global optimizer: Although the solution I reported gave my ~15km/s, that does not mean that solution is easy to find! In my thesis there's also a section of "raw data" (somewhere in the appendices), which shows per point I tried that different optimizers often find wildly different results.
I suspect that if you retry a few times, it'll probably decrease from a few hundred to a few tens to (hopefully for me!) ~fifteen.
Anyway, keep in mind that the global optimization algorithms I used (GA, PSO, etc.) use a fair bit of randomness. Chances are you'll find different results each time you run an optimization.
Of course, if you try 100 times and you still don't find anything lower than say 25km/s, I'd like to hear about that :)
Hi, this program is wonderfull. I tried to do a mission in solar bow shock to confront results written in your thesis. The program give me a total DV of several hundred of km/s... there is something that escape me? why in your thesis there are total DV of 15 km/s?
