Abstract

Catastrophic or nearly-catastrophic collisions are the most important physical processes affecting the evolution of asteroids following the primordial phases. After a general review of the current ideas about collisional evolution, also in the light of laboratory impact experiments, the problems concerning the interpretation of asteroid families as outcomes of catastrophic processes are discussed.
