Publications

Here we list a number of publications related to the GTOC competitions either because they report  methods developed during such events or because they refer and work on the competition problems. In case you know of more papers that should be listed here, please send the bibtex file in an e-mail to dario_dot_izzo_at_esa_dot_int.
