The k:k+4 resonances in planetary systems

Benoît Noyelles, Alain Vienne

    Research output: Contribution in Book/Catalog/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    In this study we give a first description of De Haerdtl's 3:7 inequality between the Jovian satellites Ganymede and Callisto and 1:5 inequality between the Saturnian Titan and Iapetus and the resonant arguments associated. For each inequality, 19 arguments are associated. The overlapping of resonant zones induces stochasic layers that the system might have crossed in the past thanks to tidal dissipation.
