|Abstract: ||We use a radar-derived physical model of 4179 Toutatis to investigate close-orbit dynamics around that irregularly shaped, non-principal-axis rotator. The orbital dynamics about this body are markedly different than the dynamics about uniformly rotating asteroids. The results of this paper have a wider application to orbit dynamics about bodies in a non-principal-axis rotation state.|
