Named in honor of Makoto Yoshikawa (1962- ), senior researcher in the Communications Research Laboratory in Japan. Known for his active research in celestial mechanics, he works on the orbital analysis of minor planets, comets, meteors, artificial satellites and space debris. He is perhaps best known for his long-term orbital analyses of minor planets in mean-motion and secular resonances. (M 26931)
