Информация о статье


The conventional technique of the least squares fit was used for the orbit determination of (4179) Toutatis on the basis of all available data: optical observations from February 1934 to February 1993 and radar data (delay and Doppler), obtained in 1992 during the asteroid approach to the Earth. The improved orbit and uncertainties analysis are presented.
