Dynamics of the asteroid rings (10199) Chariklo

Troianskyi V.V., Bazyey O.A.


In 2014 it was reported on opening two rings around asteroid (10199) Chariklo (Braga-Ribas F., et al., 2014, Nature, 508, 72–75) and it became the fifth object of the Solar system known to have ring system, after Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. The main component of the system is the biggest Centaur. This work considers the erosion time of rings in the asteroid system (10199) Chariklo, that is due to a number of effects. Also, we have calculated the mass and period of rotation of the asteroid’s shepherd satellite.
