Access from EThOS:
The two dimensional heliocentric trajectories for fixed Sun-angle solar sails are examined. The objective of this work is to completely classify all possible motion in this framework. This is achieved via a mathematical reduction which results in a two dimensional phase space interpretation of the problem.
