Roberto Gorelli points our attention at a recently published meteor related paper:

Mean-motion resonances in the Quadrantid meteoroid stream and dynamic evolution of dust trail of asteroid (196256) 2003 EH1

This article has been submitted for publication in Russian Physics Journal by G. E. Sambarov, A. P. Kartashova, and T. Yu. Galushina.

Abstract: The paper presents numerical models of mean-motion resonances detected in the Quadrantid meteoroid stream consisting of particles of mass 0.003 to 0.03 g, which helps to prove the presence of the following mean-motion resonances: the 1:9 resonance with Venus, 1:5 resonance with Earth, 1:3 and 3:8 resonances with Mars, and 2:1,7:3, 9:4 resonances with Jupiter. Resonance particles create dust trails far from the Earth’s orbit. Indeed, there is no observational support for resonant effects in the observed Quadrantid meteoroid stream.
