Królikowska M. and Dybczyński P. A. The catalogue of cometary orbits and their dynamical evolution . Astronomy and Astrophysics 2020, Volume 640, id: A97.  doi: 10.1051/0004-6361/202038451.



We present the CODE catalogue, the new cometary catalogue containing data for almost 300 long-period comets that were discovered before 2018. This is the first catalogue containing cometary orbits in the five stages of their dynamical evolution and covering three successive passages through the perihelion, with the exception of the hyperbolic comets which are treated in a different manner. Non-gravitational orbits are given for about 100 of these long-period comets, and their orbits obtained while neglecting the existence of non-gravitational acceleration are included for comparison. For many of the presented comets, different orbital solutions, based on the alternative force models or various subsets of positional data, are also provided. The preferred orbit is always clearly indicated for each comet.

This catalogue (the CODE catalogue) is publicly available at https://pad2.astro.amu.edu.pl/comets
