This is a pilot paper serving as a launching pad for study of orbital and spin evolution of binary asteroids. The rate of tidal evolution of asteroidal binaries is defined by the dynamical Love numbers kl divided by quality factors Q. Common in the literature is the (oftentimes illegitimate) approximation of the dynamical Love numbers with their static counterparts. Since the static Love numbers are, approximately, proportional to the inverse rigidity, this renders a popular fallacy that the… Expand

Spin-orbital Tidal Dynamics and Tidal Heating in the TRAPPIST-1 Multiplanet System
We perform numerical simulations of the TRAPPIST-1 system of seven exoplanets orbiting a nearby M dwarf, starting with a previously suggested stable configuration. The long-term stability of thisExpand
Tidal dissipation in rubble-pile asteroids
Abstract We develop a simple scaling argument for frictional dissipation in rubble-pile asteroids, parameterized as an effective dissipation factor Q. This scaling is combined with a predictionExpand
Tidal evolution of circumbinary systems with arbitrary eccentricities: applications for Kepler systems
We present an extended version of the Constant Time Lag analytical approach for the tidal evolution of circumbinary planets introduced in our previous work. The model is self-consistent, in the senseExpand
Forced libration of tidally synchronized planets and moons
Tidal dissipation of kinetic energy, when it is strong enough, tends to synchronize the rotation of planets and moons with the mean orbital motion, or drive it into long-term stable spin-orbitExpand
Orbital relaxation and excitation of planets tidally interacting with white dwarfs
Observational evidence of white dwarf planetary systems is dominated by the remains of exo-asteroids through accreted metals, debris discs, and orbiting planetesimals. However, exo-planets in theseExpand

This paper deals with a new formulation of the creep tide theory (Ferraz-Mello in Celest Mech Dyn Astron 116:109, 2013—Paper I) and with the tidal dissipation predicted by the theory in the case ofExpand
Dissipation in a tidally perturbed body librating in longitude
Abstract Internal dissipation in a tidally perturbed librating body differs in several respects from the tidal dissipation in a steadily spinning rotator. First, libration changes the spectralExpand
The dynamics of asteroid rotation, governed by YORP effect: The kinematic ansatz
Abstract The main motivation of this research is the analytical exploration of the dynamics of asteroid rotation when it moves in elliptic orbit through Space. According to the results of Efroimsky,Expand
The Tidal-Thermal Evolution of the Pluto-Charon System
The existence of subsurface oceans on the satellites of the giant planets and Trans-Neptunian objects has been predicted for some time. Liquid oceans on icy worlds, if present, exert a considerableExpand
