Aims. We present physical models of ten asteroids obtained by means of lightcurve inversion. A substantial part of the photometric data was observed by amateur astronomers. We emphasize the importance of a coordinated network of observers that will be of extreme importance for future all-sky asteroid photometric surveys. Methods. The lightcurve inversion method was used to derive spin states and shape models of the asteroids. Results. We derived spin states and shape model for ten new asteroids… 
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
Shape Models and Physical Properties of Asteroids
Despite the large amount of high quality data generated in recent space encounters with asteroids, the majority of our knowledge about these objects comes from ground based observations. Asteroids
Reconstruction of asteroid spin states from Gaia DR2 photometry
Context. In addition to stellar data, Gaia Data Release 2 (DR2) also contains accurate astrometry and photometry of about 14 000 asteroids covering 22 months of observations. Aims. We used Gaia
New and updated convex shape models of asteroids based on optical data from a large collaboration network
Context. Asteroid modeling efforts in the last decade resulted in a comprehensive dataset of almost 400 convex shape models and their rotation states. These efforts already provided deep insight into
Shape model of asteroid (130) Elektra from optical photometry and disk-resolved images from VLT/SPHERE and Nirc2/Keck
Asteroid (130) Elektra belongs to one of the six known triple asteroids in the main belt, so its mass has been reliably determined. We aim to use all available disk-resolved images of (130) Elektra
Asteroids' spin axis distribution
Analysing the database of asteroid models from inversion techniques (DAMIT) � , we found that the spin axis of asteroids do not avoid the ecliptic plane, which had been widely understood since the
Thermal Properties of 1847 WISE-observed Asteroids
We present new thermophysical model fits of 1847 asteroids, deriving thermal inertia, diameter, and Bond and visible geometric albedo. We use thermal flux measurements obtained by the Wide-field


Asteroid Models from the Pan-STARRS Photometry
We present simulations on the asteroid photometric data that will be provided by the Pan-STARRS (Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System). The simulations were performed using realistic

Models of Twenty Asteroids from Photometric Data
We present models of the shapes and rotational states of selected asteroids based on data from the Uppsala Asteroid Photometric Catalogue. The results show a wide variety of shapes especially among
Physical models of large number of asteroids from calibrated photometry sparse in time
I show that physical asteroid models can be constructed from unprecedentedly small sets of single calibrated photo- metric measurements sparse in time but well distributed in observing geometries.

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
Ground reference for space remote sensing. Laboratory photometry of an asteroid model
We present accurate laboratory CCD photometry of an artificial asteroid sample. The standard inversion method for asteroid lightcurves was implemented to reproduce the measured lightcurves and to

Binary structures among large asteroids
The imaging of well-observed large asteroids by lightcurve inversion has revealed objects, such as 44 Nysa and 41 Daphne, that are distinctly asymmetric and globally very different from
Optimization Methods for Asteroid Lightcurve Inversion: I. Shape Determination
Abstract We have developed new methods for determining the shapes (and albedo distributions), rotation periods, and pole directions (as well as other parameters, e.g., those of the scattering law) of
