N ov 2 00 8 Dynamics of Enceladus and Dione inside the 2 : 1 Mean-Motion Resonance under Tidal Dissipation


In a previous work (Callegari and Yokoyama 2007, Celest. Mech. Dyn. Astr. vol. 98), the main features of the motion of the pair Enceladus-Dione were analyzed in the frozen regime, i.e., without considering the tidal evolution. Here, the results of a great deal of numerical simulations of a pair of satellites similar to Enceladus and Dione crossing the 2:1… (More)
