The ESA Gaia mission and its contribution to asteroid orbit determination

Relatore: 
Dr. Federica Spoto

The ESA mission Gaia, which is currently surveying the sky from the

Sun-Earth L2 Lagrangian Point, is providing astrometry of stars and

asteroids at few mas. The first Gaia Data Release, which

includes 2 millions of stars with position, parallaxes, and proper

motion and a position catalog of 1.1 billion of stars, has already

shown the strength of this unprecedented power of investigation.

 

The next Gaia data release in April 2018 will contain not only

billions of stars with proper motions and parallaxes, but also the

Asteroid families identification: history and state of the art

Relatore: 
Dr. Zoran Knezevic

The history of asteroid families, from their discovery back in 1918, until the present time, is briefly reviewed. Two threads have been followed: on the development of the theories of asteroid motion and the computation of proper elements, and on the methods of classification themselves. Three distinct periods can be distinguished: the first one until mid-1930s, devoted to discovery and
