J/A+A/505/1283      (84922) 2003 VS2 differential light curve   (Duffard+, 2009)

Transneptunian objects and Centaurs from light curves. Duffard R., Ortiz J.L., Thirouin A., Santos-Sanz P., Morales N. <Astron. Astrophys., 505, 1283-1295 (2009)> =2009A&A...505.1283D
ADC_Keywords: Minor planets ; Photometry Keywords: Kuiper belt - solar system: formation - techniques: photometric Abstract: We compile and analyze an extended database of light curve parameters scattered in the literature to search for correlations and study physical properties, including internal structure constraints. Description: We analyze a vast light curve database by obtaining mean rotational properties of the entire sample, determining the spin frequency distribution and comparing those data with a simple model based on hydrostatic equilibrium.
