A comparative analysis of the geometric and dynamic shapes of the planetary satellites

S. A. Yasenev

Abstract


Determining of dynamic shapes of planetary satellites is today the urgent problem. The purpose of this paper isto analyze the physical properties of satellites which we refer to planetoids. Planetary satellites are analyzed asself-gravitating structures, and differences in their dynamic and geometric shapes are identified.

Keywords
