On the stability of the satellites of asteroid 87 Sylvia
(Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 2009-05-01) [Artigo]
The triple asteroidal system (87) Sylvia is composed of a 280-km primary and two small moonlets named Romulus and Remus (Marchis et al. 2005b). Sylvia is located in the main asteroid belt, with semi-major axis of about ...
Poincare surfaces of section around a 3D irregular body: the case of asteroid 4179 Toutatis
(Monthly Notices Of The Royal Astronomical Society, 2018-02-01) [Artigo]
In general, small bodies of the Solar system, e.g. asteroids and comets, have a very irregular shape. This feature affects significantly the gravitational potential around these irregular bodies, which hinders dynamical ...
Sphere of influence and gravitational capture radius: a dynamical approach
(Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 2008-12-01) [Artigo]
For problems in celestial mechanics that involve close encounters, it is necessary to determine the region where the gravitational influence of a body prevails over the influence of other bodies. From this need comes the ...
Planet formation in a triple stellar system: implications of the third star's orbital inclination
(International Journal Of Astrobiology, 2015-04-01) [Artigo]
Planets have been revealed both in binary and triple stellar systems. Although there have been several studies of the late stages of planet formation in binary stars this process does not appear to have been studied in ...
