Capture of the Comet P/Boethin by Jupiter

  • Benest Daniel (a1), Bien Reinhold (a2) and Rickman Hans (a3)

Abstract

The possible effects of non-gravitationnal forces on the motion of the comet P/Boethin are investigated for various values of the orbital period. A time interval of 2000 years backward and forward is treated. The authors find in all cases that the comet librates temporarily around the 1/1 resonance with Jupiter as a remote jovian satellite during at least two centuries.
