Nonspherical dust in exterior resonances with Neptune

  • M. Kocifaj (a1), J. Klačka (a2) and H. Horvath (a1)
Abstract

Nonspherical dust grains orbiting the Sun are influenced by solar electromagnetic radiation. Interaction of electromagnetic radiation with nonspherical grains is complex and analogy with spherical grains may not be physically justified. As a consequence, equation of motion for nonspherical grain is more general than the equation of motion for spherical particle. Application of this more general interaction to possible trapping of the grain in resonances with planet Neptune is investigated. Approximation of the planar circular restricted three-body problem with action of solar electromagnetic radiation on nonspherical grain is used.

The orbital evolution of nonspherical dust grains of radius $\approx$ 2 micrometers is numerically calculated. Attention is payed to exterior resonances with the Neptune, and the numerical experiments are concentrated on their possible high capture efficiency. Physical difference between possibilities for resonant captures for spherical and nonspherical dust particles is pointed out.To search for other articles by the author(s) go to: http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abstract_service.html
