dc.description.abstract The results from studies of D/Shoemaker-Levy 9 and other recent split comets and comet pairs lead to the recognition of fundamental differences between breakup products of the tidally and nontidally split comets and to the conclusive indentification of the so-called dissipating comets as secondary nuclei of previously split comets, whose separately arriving principal nulei had in most cases been missed. en_US
