             abstract = "The asteroid 243 Ida located in the asteroid belt, between Mars 
                         and Jupiter, is the fourth largest asteroid of the Koronis 
                         asteroid family, with an average diameter of 31.3 km and a mass 
                         around 4.2×1016 kg, and a small moon, Dactyl. In order to study 
                         the dynamics of this system, orbital trajectories are simulated 
                         around Ida considering, besides the gravitational attraction of 
                         Dactyl, the non-central gravitational field of the asteroid, 
                         defined by a polyhedral model that defines the shape and the 
                         non-uniform mass distribution of the body. In this way, the 
                         magnitude and the behaviour of such forces, and also their 
                         influence on the orbital elements that define the trajectory of 
                         the space vehicle, are evaluated and analysed.",
