lnts.gms : Particle steering COPS 2.0 #9

Description

Minimize the time take for a particle, acted upon by a thrust of
constant magnitude, to achieve a given altitude and terminal
velocity.

This model is from the COPS benchmarking suite.
See http://www-unix.mcs.anl.gov/~more/cops/.

The number of discretization points can be specified using the command
line parameter --nh. COPS performance tests have been reported for nh
= 50, 100, 200, 400
