The paper "Lunar orbit propellant transfer" that I am submitting to the 8th International Aerospace Congress can be found here.

This program calculates the vehicle mass (me) (excluding tanks) given trans Lunar injection (TLI) mass (m) for Earth orbit rendezvous (EOR) of a Lunar vehicle. The program can also calculate m ] given me. Five different methods can be selected:

Direct Ascent
Lunar Surface Propellant Transfer (O2)
Lunar Orbit Propellant Transfer (O2)
Lunar Surface Propellant Transfer (O2/H2)
Lunar Orbit Propellant Transfer (O2/H2)
