The Jovian Trojans are two swarms of small objects that share Jupiter’s orbit, clustered around the leading and trailing Lagrange points, L4 and L5. In this work, we investigate the Jovian Trojan population using the technique of astrocladistics, an adaptation of the ‘tree of life’ approach used in biology. We combine colour data from WISE, SDSS, Gaia DR2 and MOVIS surveys with knowledge of the physical and orbital characteristics of the Trojans, to generate a classification tree composed of… 
HD 83443c: A Highly Eccentric Giant Planet on a 22 yr Orbit
We report the discovery of a highly eccentric long-period Jovian planet orbiting the hot-Jupiter host HD 83443. By combining radial velocity data from four instruments (AAT/UCLES, Keck/HIRES, HARPS,
Metal Pollution of the Solar White Dwarf by Solar System Small Bodies
White dwarfs (WDs) often show metal lines in their spectra, indicating accretion of asteroidal material. Our Sun is to become a WD in several gigayears. Here, we examine how the solar WD accretes

The Jupiter Trojan asteroid 128383 (2004 JW52) was recently reported to have optical colors that are incongruous with its dynamical class. New and archival observations show that this is not the
Asteroid families: properties, recent advances, and future opportunities
Collisions are one of the key processes shaping planetary systems. Asteroid families are outcomes of such collision still identifiable across our solar system. The families provide a unique view of

Cladistical Analysis of the Jovian and Saturnian Satellite Systems
TLDR
This work performs the first cladistical study of objects in a planetary science context, using the orbital, physical and compositional characteristics of satellites to classify the objects in the Jovian and Saturnian systems.
CAPTURE OF TROJANS BY JUMPING JUPITER
Jupiter Trojans are thought to be survivors of a much larger population of planetesimals that existed in the planetary region when planets formed. They can provide important constraints on the mass
The capture of Trojan asteroids by the giant planets during planetary migration
Of the four giant planets in the Solar system, only Jupiter and Neptune are currently known to possess swarms of Trojan asteroids - small objects that experience a 1:1 mean motion resonance with
WISE/NEOWISE OBSERVATIONS OF THE JOVIAN TROJAN POPULATION: TAXONOMY
We present updated/new thermal model fits for 478 Jovian Trojan asteroids observed with the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). Using the fact that the two shortest bands used by WISE,
Chaotic capture of Jupiter's Trojan asteroids in the early Solar System
TLDR
It is shown that the Trojans could have formed in more distant regions and been subsequently captured into co-orbital motion with Jupiter during the time when the giant planets migrated by removing neighbouring planetesimals.
WISE/NEOWISE OBSERVATIONS OF THE JOVIAN TROJANS: PRELIMINARY RESULTS
We present the preliminary analysis of over 1739 known and 349 candidate Jovian Trojans observed by the NEOWISE component of the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). With this survey the
Dynamical evolution of Jupiter's Trojan asteroids
TROJAN asteroids, which may outnumber the asteroids in the asteriod belt, are objects that orbit the Sun with the same mean semi-major axis as Jupiter, but lead or trail the position of Jupiter in
The properties of Jovian Trojan asteroids listed in SDSS Moving Object Catalogue 3
We analyse 1187 observations of about 860 unique candidate Jovian Trojan asteroids listed in the 3rd release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Moving Object Catalogue. The sample is complete at
