Astro/Particle Seminar


Of Horseshoes and Quasi-satellites

Kim Innanen
York University

Time
 
Tue. November 12, 2002     11:30 AM     Room 201

Abstract
 
A review will be given of the history of the quasi-satellite (QS) trajectory in the Newtonian potential of the solar system, together with the adiabatic invariant governing its motion. This will be followed by a discussion of the fascinating motion of asteroid 2002 AA29, and the relationship of QS motion to the classical horseshoe trajectory. Finally, a new result of the QS form in a logarithmic (galaxy) potential will be described.
