The method of singular—perturbation analysis is applied

to the determination of range-fuel—time optimal aircraft


The problem is shown to break down into three sub-problems

which are studied separately. In particular, the inner layer

containing the altitude path-angle dynamics is analyzed in

detail. The outer solutions are discussed in an earlier work.
