Abstract: This is a short guide to use the Fortran and Matlab package TfMin designed for the numerical solution of continuous 3D minimum-time orbit transfer around the Earth (with free final longitude), especially for low thrust engines. The underlying method is single shooting. The Matlab interface with the solver allows the user to define the problem and to draw the min-time orbits computed.

Keywords: continuous minimum-time orbit transfer, low-thrust transfer, single shooting, continuation
