It is generally accepted that Main-Belt asteroids (MBAs) and nuclei of no longer active comets are the sources that replenish the Amor, Apollo, and Aten groups of asteroids, i.e., Earth-approaching asteroids (EAAs). Investigations of the dynamics of EAAs and numerical modeling of their orbital motion have shown that the so-called resonance mechanism of the replenishment of the EAA population with objects from the Main Belt is quite sufficient for its maintenance. In this paper, we compare the… Expand
