Linking very short arcs from large database of asteroid observations

  • Giovanni F. Gronchi (a1), Giulio Baù (a1) and Stefano Marò (a1)

Extract

With the improvements of the observational technology for the new surveys the number of asteroid detections is rapidly increasing. For this reason we must use very efficient methods to compute orbits with these data. We have to identify observations taken in different nights as belonging to the same asteroid. If we do not have an efficient algorithm for that, the unidentified observation database can increase without control, and we risk to detect the same objects multiple times.
