Rotational lightcurves of asteroids

Summary: determination of best-fit rotational lightcurves for asteroids using phase dispersion minimization from sparse photometry

Procedure: identify all asteroids for which a minimum number of observations exist; retrieve calibrated photometry for a given filter; compute equivalent absolute magnitudes for each apparent magnitude measurement (i.e., for R=Δ=1 AU and phase angle = 0, using best-fit H,G parameter values where available); perform PDM analysis on resulting data
