Asteroids’ physical models from combined dense and sparse photometry and scaling of the YORP effect by the observed obliquity distribution

The larger number of models of asteroid shapes and their rotational states derived by the lightcurve inversion give us better insight into both the nature of individual objects and the whole asteroid

Inversion of asteroid photometry from Gaia DR2 and the Lowell Observatory photometric database

Context. Rotation properties (spin-axis direction and rotation period) and coarse shape models of asteroids can be reconstructed from their disk-integrated brightness when measured from various

Photometry and models of selected main belt asteroids - IX. Introducing interactive service for asteroid models (ISAM)

Context. The shapes and spin states of asteroids observed with photometric techniques can be reconstructed using the lightcurve inversion method. The resultant models can then be confirmed or

Asteroid Models from Multiple Data Sources

In the past decade, hundreds of asteroid shape models have been derived using the lightcurve inversion method. At the same time, a new framework of 3-D shape modeling based on the combined analysis

Precise astrometry and diameters of asteroids from occultations – a data set of observations and their interpretation

Occultations of stars by asteroids have been observed since 1961, increasing from a very small number to now over 500 annually. We have created and regularly maintain a growing data-set of more than

Asteroid models reconstructed from the Lowell Photometric Database and WISE data

Context. Information about the spin state of asteroids is important for our understanding of the dynamical processes affecting them. However, spin properties of asteroids are known for only a small

Asteroid models from combined sparse and dense photometric data

Aims. Shape and spin state are basic physical characteristics of a n asteroid. They can be derived from disc-integrated photometry by the lightcurve inversion method. Increasing the number of

Asteroid occultations today and tomorrow: toward the GAIA era

Context. Observation of star occultations is a powerful tool to determine shapes and sizes of asteroids. This is key information necessary for studying the evolution of the asteroid belt and to

High Resolution Asteroid Profile by Multi Chord Occultation Observations

For millennia man has observed celestial objects occulting other bodies and distant stars. We have used these celestial synchronicities to measure the properties of objects. On January 1, 1801

DAMIT: a database of asteroid models

Context. Apart from a few targets that were directly imaged by spacecraft, remote sensing techniques are the main source of information about the basic physical properties of asteroids, such as the

Direct determination of asteroid diameters from occultation observations

Of the available earth-based techniques for determining asteroid diameters, observation of stellar occultations involving asteroids is clearly the most direct. The high degree of accuracy achievable

Physical models of asteroids from sparse photometric data

Abstract We present an overview of our work on shape and spin state determination of asteroids from photometric data sparse in time. Our results are based on simulations that were performed using

Optimization Methods for Asteroid Lightcurve Inversion. II. The Complete Inverse Problem

Abstract The rotation period, pole direction, and scattering parameters of an asteroid can be deduced from its lightcurves simultaneously with the shape. Simulations and real data indicate that the
