A multidomain approach to asteroid families' identification
(Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 2013-08-01) [Artigo]
It has been shown that large families are not limited to what found by hierarchical clustering methods in the domain of proper elements (a, e, sin(i)), which seems to be biased to find compact, relatively young clusters, ...
Dynamical evolution of V-type asteroids in the central main belt
(Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 2014-04-01) [Artigo]
The origin of this large population of V-type objects is not well understood. Since it seems unlikely that Vestoids crossing the 3J:-1A mean-motion resonance with Jupiter could account for the whole population of V-type ...
THE EUPHROSYNE FAMILY'S CONTRIBUTION TO THE LOW ALBEDO NEAR-EARTH ASTEROIDS
(Astrophysical Journal, 2015-08-20) [Artigo]
The Euphrosyne asteroid family is uniquely situated at high inclination in the outer Main Belt, bisected by the n6 secular resonance. This large, low albedo family may thus be an important contributor to specific subpopulations ...
Dynamical evolution and chronology of the Hygiea asteroid family
(Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 2014-01-01) [Artigo]
The asteroid (10) Hygiea is the fourth largest asteroid of the main belt, by volume and mass, and it is the largest member of its own family. Previous works investigated the long-term effects of close encounters with (10) ...
(Astrophysical Journal, 2014-09-01) [Artigo]
The asteroid (31) Euphrosyne is the largest body of its namesake family, and it contains more than 99% of the family mass. Among large asteroid families, the Euphrosyne group is peculiar because of its quite steep ...
Dynamical evolution of V-type photometric candidates in the outer main belt
(Monthly Notices Of The Royal Astronomical Society, 2014-11-01) [Artigo]
V-type asteroids, characterized by two absorption bands at 1.0 and 2.0 mu m, are usually thought to be portions of the crust of differentiated or partially differentiated bodies. Most V-type asteroids are found in the inner ...
