Context. Disk-integrated photometric data of asteroids do not contain accurate information on shape details or size scale. Additional data such as disk-resolved images or stellar occultation measurements further constrain asteroid shapes and allow size estimates.Aims. We aim to use all the available disk-resolved images of approximately forty asteroids obtained by the Near-InfraRed Camera (Nirc2) mounted on the W.M. Keck II telescope together with the disk-integrated photometry and stellar… 
Homogeneous internal structure of CM-like asteroid (41) Daphne
Context. CM-like asteroids (Ch and Cgh classes) are a major population within the broader C-complex, encompassing about 10% of the mass of the main asteroid belt. Their internal structure has been
The AKARI IRC asteroid flux catalogue: updated diameters and albedos
The AKARI IRC All-sky survey provided more than twenty thousand thermal infrared observations of over five thousand asteroids. Diameters and albedos were obtained by fitting an empirically calibrated
Precise astrometry and diameters of asteroids from occultations – a data set of observations and their interpretation
Occultations of stars by asteroids have been observed since 1961, increasing from a very small number to now over 500 annually. We have created and regularly maintain a growing data-set of more than
Asteroid mass estimation with the robust adaptive Metropolis algorithm
Context. The bulk density of an asteroid informs us about its interior structure and composition. To constrain the bulk density, one needs an estimated mass of the asteroid. The mass is estimated by
Spin states of asteroids in the Eos collisional family
VLT/SPHERE imaging survey of the largest main-belt asteroids: Final results and synthesis
Context. Until recently, the 3D shape, and therefore density (when combining the volume estimate with available mass estimates), and surface topography of the vast majority of the largest (D  ≥ 100
Photometric survey, modelling, and scaling of long-period and low-amplitude asteroids
The available set of spin and shape modelled asteroids is strongly biased against slowly rotating targets and those with low lightcurve amplitudes. As a consequence of these selection effects, the
Multitechnique Characterization of Binary Asteroids
Binary asteroids represent a natural laboratory to gather crucial information on small bodiesof the Solar System, providing an overview of the formation and evolution mechanisms of these objects.
Thermal properties of large main-belt asteroids observed by Herschel PACS
Non-resolved thermal infrared observations enable studies of thermal and physical properties of asteroids via thermo-physical models provided the shape and rotational properties of the target are
The shape of (7) Iris as evidence of an ancient large impact?
Context. Asteroid (7) Iris is an ideal target for disk-resolved imaging owing to its brightness (V ~ 7–8) and large angular size of 0.33′′ during its apparitions. Iris is believed to belong to the


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’ physical models from combined dense and sparse photometry and scaling of the YORP effect by the observed obliquity distribution
The larger number of models of asteroid shapes and their rotational states derived by the lightcurve inversion give us better insight into both the nature of individual objects and the whole asteroid
Asteroid models from combined sparse and dense photometric data
Aims. Shape and spin state are basic physical characteristics of a n asteroid. They can be derived from disc-integrated photometry by the lightcurve inversion method. Increasing the number of

ADAM: a general method for using various data types in asteroid reconstruction
We introduce ADAM, the All-Data Asteroid Modelling algorithm. ADAM is simple and universal since it handles all disk-resolved data types (adaptive optics or other images, interferometry, and
