abstract = {In this chapter the optimization of low-energy transfers is treated. The concepts of trajectory optimization are recalled, and the direct transcription strategy is briefly sketched. The restricted three- and four-body problems are described, and their properties are discussed. Two different types of low-energy transfers are optimized: impulsive Earthâ€“Moon exterior low-energy transfers and low-energy, low-thrust transfers to the L 1 periodic orbits of the Earthâ€“Moon system.},
