Dynamical Outcomes of Planet-Planet Scattering
Observations in the past decade have revealed extrasolar planets with a wide range of orbital semimajor axes and eccentricities. Based on the present understanding of planet formation via coreExpand
A COMBINED SUBARU/VLT/MMT 1-5 μm STUDY OF PLANETS ORBITING HR 8799: IMPLICATIONS FOR ATMOSPHERIC PROPERTIES, MASSES, AND FORMATION
We present new 1-1.25 μm (z and J band) Subaru/IRCS and 2 μm (K band) VLT/NaCo data for HR 8799 and a re-reduction of the 3-5 μm MMT/Clio data first presented by Hinz et al. Our VLT/NaCo data yield aExpand
TIDAL EVOLUTION OF CLOSE-IN PLANETS
Recent discoveries of several transiting planets with clearly non-zero eccentricities and some large obliquities started changing the simple picture of close-in planets having circular andExpand
A 5 μm IMAGE OF β PICTORIS b AT A SUB-JUPITER PROJECTED SEPARATION: EVIDENCE FOR A MISALIGNMENT BETWEEN THE PLANET AND THE INNER, WARPED DISK
We present and analyze a new M' detection of the young exoplanet {beta} Pictoris b from 2008 VLT/NaCo data at a separation of {approx}4 AU and a high signal-to-noise rereduction of L' data taken inExpand
Deep Thermal Infrared Imaging of HR 8799 bcde: New Atmospheric Constraints and Limits on a Fifth Planet
We present new $L^\prime$ (3.8 $\mu m$) and Br-$\alpha$ (4.05 $\mu m$) data and reprocessed archival $L^\prime$ data for the young, planet-hosting star HR 8799 obtained with Keck/NIRC2, VLT/NaCo andExpand
A COMBINED VERY LARGE TELESCOPE AND GEMINI STUDY OF THE ATMOSPHERE OF THE DIRECTLY IMAGED PLANET, β PICTORIS b
We analyze new/archival VLT/NaCo and Gemini/NICI high-contrast imaging of the young, self-luminous planet β Pictoris b in seven near-to-mid IR photometric filters, using advanced image processingExpand
On the Origins of Eccentric Close-In Planets
Strong tidal interaction with the central star can circularize the orbits of close-in planets. With the standard tidal quality factor Q of our solar system, estimated circularization times forExpand
Direct detection and orbital analysis of the exoplanets HR 8799 bcd from archival 2005 Keck/NIRC2 data
We present previously unpublished 2005 July H-band coronagraphic data of the young, planet-hosting star HR 8799 from the newly released Keck/NIRC2 archive. Despite poor observing conditions, weExpand
DIRECT IMAGING CONFIRMATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF A DUST-ENSHROUDED CANDIDATE EXOPLANET ORBITING FOMALHAUT
We present Subaru/IRCS J-band data for Fomalhaut and a (re)reduction of archival 2004-2006 HST/ACS data first presented by Kalas et al. We confirm the existence of a candidate exoplanet, Fomalhaut b,Expand
Analysis of terrestrial planet formation by the Grand Tack model: System architecture and tack location
The Grand Tack model of terrestrial planet formation has emerged in recent years as the premier scenario used to account for several observed features of the inner solar system. It relies on earlyExpand
