Название: Origin and Evolution of Comets: Ten Years After the Nice Model and One Year After Rosetta Автор: Hans Rickman Издательство: World Scientific Publishing Год: 2017 Формат: PDF Размер: 31 Мб Язык: английский / English
Since several decades, comets have been considered as key witnesses of solar system formation. Their nature has been explored using the modern arsenal of Earth- and space-based observations, and they hold a central place as dynamical arbiters of the planetary system in the new paradigm of solar system evolution known as the Nice Model.
Thus, they have the potential to test the various ideas, using the detailed data recently gathered by the ESA/Rosetta mission. This requires an understanding of their origin and evolution, which form the subject of the present book. All the relevant issues are covered, describing both the background and the current frontiers of research
Readership: University students and researchers interested in astrophysics.
