The Size Distribution of Trans-Neptunian Bodies*
We search 0.02 deg 2 of the invariable plane for trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) 25 AU or more distant using the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) aboard the Hubble Space Telescope. With 22 ks perExpand

Debris disk evolution around a stars
We report 24 and/or 70 μm measurements of ~160 A-type main-sequence stars using the Multiband Imaging Photometer for Spitzer (MIPS). Their ages range from 5 to 850 Myr, based on estimates from theExpand

Debris Disks around Sun-like Stars
We have observed nearly 200 FGK stars at 24 and 70 ?m with the Spitzer Space Telescope. We identify excess infrared emission, including a number of cases where the observed flux is more than 10 timesExpand

Decay of Planetary Debris Disks
We report new Spitzer 24 � m photometry of 76 main-sequence A-type stars. We combine these results with previously reportedSpitzer24 � m data and 24 and 25 � m photometry from theInfrared SpaceExpand

THE SUBSTELLAR MASS FUNCTION: A BAYESIAN APPROACH
We report our efforts to constrain the form of the low-mass star and brown dwarf mass function via Bayesian inference. Recent surveys of M, L, and T dwarfs in the local solar neighborhood are anExpand

Orbital evolution and migration of giant planets: modeling extrasolar planets
Giant planets in circumstellar disks can migrate inward from their initial (formation) positions. Radial migration is caused by inward torques between the planet and the disk, by outward torquesExpand
