The Use of Geocentric Variables to Search for Meteoroid Streams and Their Parents

Abstract
Abstract

A set of geocentric variables suitable for the identification of meteoroid streams has been recently proposed and successfully applied to photographic meteor orbits. We describe these variables and the secular invariance of some of them, and discuss their use to improve the search for meteoroid stream parents.
