It is widely believed that cometary orbits contain important clues to both the outer solar system’s current structure and its past dynamical evolution. The first part of this paper summarizes the results of numerical simulations designed to study the dynamical origins of observed comets and to link the observed populations to the reservoirs from which they are currently leaking. The second part reviews simulations which are designed to study the dynamical origin of the reservoirs themselves… Expand
