Effects of thermal radiation on the dynamics of binary NEAs

M CUK, J BURNS
2005 Icarus (New York, N.Y. 1962)  
Here we explore a related effect, the "binary YORP" (BYORP), that can modify the orbit of a synchronously rotating secondary in a binary system.  ...  To estimate BYORP's strength, we subjected 100 random Gaussian spheroids to the thermal radiation model of Rubincam (2000, Radiative spin-up and spin-down of small asteroids, Icarus, 148, 2-11).  ...  Acknowledgments The authors thank Petr Pravec for allowing use of his statistical data on NEA binaries (Table 1) , David Rubincam for permitting us to reproduce Fig. 1 from his paper, and Jean-Luc Margot  ...

Excitation of Tumbling in Phobos and Deimos [article]

Alice C. Quillen and Mckenzie Lane and Miki Nakajima and Esteban Wright
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We propose that the low orbital eccentricities of Phobos and Deimos could in part be due to spin excitation by impacts rather than tidal evolution following orbital resonance excitation.  ...  From an initially tidally locked state, we find crossing of a spin-orbit resonance with Mars or a mean motion resonance with each other does not excite tumbling in Phobos or Deimos.  ...  We acknowledge support from the NASA Summer Undergraduate Program for Planetary Research (SUPPR) internship program.  ...

Resonant-plane locking and spin alignment in stellar-mass black-hole binaries: A diagnostic of compact-binary formation

Davide Gerosa, Michael Kesden, Emanuele Berti, Richard O'Shaughnessy, Ulrich Sperhake
2013 Physical Review D  
This "resonant plane" is identified by the conditions ΔΦ=0 or ΔΦ=+/-180, where ΔΦ is the angle between the components of the black-hole spins in the plane orthogonal to the orbital angular momentum.  ...  If the angles ΔΦ can be accurately measured for a large sample of gravitational-wave detections, their distribution will constrain models of compact binary formation.  ...  This research was supported in part by  ...

Tidal Dissipation in Rotating Solar‐Type Stars

G. I. Ogilvie, D. N. C. Lin
2007 Astrophysical Journal  
We calculate the excitation and dissipation of low-frequency tidal oscillations in uniformly rotating solar-type stars.  ...  However, the dependence of the results on the spin frequency, tidal frequency, and stellar model indicate that a more detailed evolutionary study including inertial and Hough waves is required.  ...  We are very grateful to Shulin Li and Christopher Tout for providing stellar interior models and assisting with their interpretation.  ...
