Link to MS Teams meeting
Meeting ID: 358 013 417 004, Passcode: aYoE2w

I’ll review the influence of the radiation pressure forces on the dynamics and evolution of asteroids, the so-called Yarkovsky and YORP effects. Special attention will be devoted to the theoretical description of these effects, their significance for the evolution of asteroids, and my own results: the tangential YORP effect and possible dynamic equilibria for asteroids subject to YORP.

Chairman: Prof. Sławomir Breiter
