Abstract Key words:
Until very recently, the mass of minor planet 2 Pallas had been determined
from its gravitational effects on only 1 Ceres and the planet Mars. An independent
confirmation was therefore highly desirable. This paper presents individual mass
determinations based on close encounters with 16 other minor planets, as well
as a simultaneous solution using all objects. The resulting value for the mass
, essentially confirms
the result from Ceres alone.

The OpenURL standard is a protocol for transmission of metadata describing the resource that you wish to access.
An OpenURL link contains article metadata and directs it to the OpenURL server of your choice. The OpenURL server can provide access to the resource and also offer complementary services (specific search engine, export of references...). The OpenURL link can be generated by different means.
- If your librarian has set up your subscription with an OpenURL resolver, OpenURL links appear automatically on the abstract pages.
- You can define your own OpenURL resolver with your EDPS Account. In this case your choice will be given priority over that of your library.
- You can use an add-on for your browser (Firefox or I.E.) to display OpenURL links on a page (see http://www.openly.com/openurlref/). You should disable this module if you wish to use the OpenURL server that you or your library have defined.
