Abstract:Migration of trans-Neptunian objects under their mutual gravitation influence and the influence of the giant planets is investigated. These investigations are based on computer simulation results and on some formulas. We estimated that about 20 % of near-Earth objects with diameter d ≥ 1 km may have come from the Edgeworth-Kuiper belt.
