Title: Dynamics of the Trans-Neptune Region: Apsidal Waves in the Kuiper Belt
Authors: Hahn, Joseph M.
Ward, William R.
Issue Date: Dec-1997
Citation: USA
Abstract: The role of apsidal density waves propagating in a primordial trans-Neptune disk (i.e., Kuiper belt) is investigated. It is shown that Neptune launches apsidal waves at its secular resonance near 40 AU wich propagate radially outwards, deeper into the particle disk.
