Abstract Key words:
Here I present a new attempt to determine the mass of (4) Vesta, based on its close approaches
with relatively well observed minor planets: (3057) Malaren, (5205) 1988CU7, (8331) Dawkins
and (21225) 1995GQ1. The obtained values for the mass of (4) Vesta are comparable with earlier determined ones.

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

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.
