Evidence for color dichotomy in the primordial Neptunian Trojan population
The effect of orbital damping during planet migration on the inclination and eccentricity distributions of Neptunian Trojans
We explore planetary migration scenarios for the formation of high-inclination Neptunian Trojans (NTs) and how they are affected by the planetary migration of Neptune and Uranus. If Neptune's and
Neptune trojan formation during planetary instability and migration
Aims. We investigate the process of Neptune trojan capture and permanence in resonance up to the present time based on a planetary instability migration model. Methods. We do a numerical simulation
The Trojan Color Conundrum
The Trojan asteroids of Jupiter and Neptune are likely to have been captured from original heliocentric orbits in the dynamically excited ("hot") population of the Kuiper belt. However, it has long
Limits on the number of primordial Scattered disc objects at Pluto mass and higher from the absence of their dynamical signatures on the present-day trans-Neptunian Populations
Today, Pluto and Eris are the largest and most massive Trans-Neptunian Objects respectively. They are believed to be the last remnants of a population of planetesimals that has been reduced by >99%
The Pan-STARRS 1 Discoveries of five new Neptune Trojans
In this work we report the detection of seven Neptune Trojans (NTs) in the Pan-STARRS 1 (PS1) survey. Five of these are new discoveries, consisting of four L4 Trojans and one L5 Trojan. Our orbital
Systematic survey of the dynamics of Uranus Trojans
Context. The discovered Uranus Trojan (UT) 2011 QF99 and several candidate UTs have been reported to be in unstable orbits. This implies that the stability region around the triangular Lagrange
A carefully characterised trans-neptunian survey
The Trans-Neptunian Objects (TNOs) preserve evidence of planet building processes in their orbital and size distributions. While all populations show steep size distributions for large objects,

Origin and dynamical evolution of Neptune Trojans: I. formation and planetary migration
We present the results of detailed dynamical simulations of the effect of the migration of the four giant planets on both the transport of pre-formed Neptune Trojans and the capture of new Trojans
NEPTUNE ON TIPTOES: DYNAMICAL HISTORIES THAT PRESERVE THE COLD CLASSICAL KUIPER BELT
The current dynamical structure of the Kuiper Belt was shaped by the orbital evolution of the giant planets, especially Neptune, during the era following planet formation when the giant planets may
A Thick Cloud of Neptune Trojans and Their Colors
TLDR
The discovery of a high-inclination Neptune Trojan, 2005 TN53 demonstrates that the Neptune Trojan population occupies a thick disk, which is indicative of “freeze-in” capture instead of in situ or collisional formation.
The Size Distribution of the Neptune Trojans and the Missing Intermediate Sized Planetesimals
We present an ultra-deep survey for Neptune Trojans using the Subaru 8.2-m and Magellan 6.5-m telescopes. The survey reached a 50% detection efficiency in the R-band at 25.7 magnitudes and covered 49
NEPTUNE'S WILD DAYS: CONSTRAINTS FROM THE ECCENTRICITY DISTRIBUTION OF THE CLASSICAL KUIPER BELT
Neptune's dynamical history shaped the current orbits of Kuiper Belt objects (KBOs), leaving clues to the planet's orbital evolution. In the 'classical' region, a population of dynamically 'hot'
2011 HM102: DISCOVERY OF A HIGH-INCLINATION L5 NEPTUNE TROJAN IN THE SEARCH FOR A POST-PLUTO NEW HORIZONS TARGET
We present the discovery of a long-term stable L5 (trailing) Neptune Trojan in data acquired to search for candidate trans-Neptunian objects for the New Horizons spacecraft to fly by during an
2004 KV18: a visitor from the scattered disc to the Neptune Trojan population
We have performed a detailed dynamical study of the recently identified Neptunian Trojan 2004 KV18, only the second object to be discovered librating around Neptune's trailing Lagrange point, L5. We
CHAOTIC CAPTURE OF NEPTUNE TROJANS
Neptune Trojans (NTs) are swarms of outer solar system objects that lead/trail planet Neptune during its revolutions around the Sun. Observations indicate that NTs form a thick cloud of objects with
The dynamics of Neptune Trojan - I. The inclined orbits
The stability of Trojan type orbits around Neptune is studied. As the first part of our investigation, we present in this paper a global view of the stability of Trojans on inclined orbits. Using the
