EMBRYO IMPACTS AND GAS GIANT MERGERS. I. DICHOTOMY OF JUPITER AND SATURN's CORE MASS

Interior to the gaseous envelopes of Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, there are high-density cores with masses larger than 10 Earth masses. According to the conventional sequential accretion hypothesis,

Jupiter’s heavy-element enrichment expected from formation models

Aims. The goal of this work is to investigate Jupiter’s growth by focusing on the amount of heavy elements accreted by the planet, and to compare this with recent structure models of Jupiter.

HEAVY-ELEMENT ENRICHMENT OF A JUPITER-MASS PROTOPLANET AS A FUNCTION OF ORBITAL LOCATION

One possible mechanism for giant planet formation is disk instability in which the planet is formed as a result of gravitational instability in the protoplanetary disk surrounding the young star. The

Formation of Jupiter and Conditions for Accretion of the Galilean Satellites

We present an overview of the formation of Jupiter and its associated circumplanetary disk. Jupiter forms via a combination of planetesimal accretion and gravitational accumulation of gas from the

ON THE EVOLUTION AND SURVIVAL OF PROTOPLANETS EMBEDDED IN A PROTOPLANETARY DISK

We model the evolution of a Jupiter-mass protoplanet formed by the disk instability mechanism at various radial distances accounting for the presence of the disk. Using three different disk models,

CAPTURE AND EVOLUTION OF PLANETESIMALS IN CIRCUMJOVIAN DISKS

We study the evolution of planetesimals in evolved gaseous disks that orbit a solar-mass star and harbor a Jupiter-mass planet at a p ≈ 5 ?> AU. The gas dynamics are modeled with a three-dimensional

The Evolution of Gravitationally Unstable Protoplanetary Disks: Fragmentation and Possible Giant Planet Formation

We carry out a large set of very high resolution, three-dimensional, smoothed particle hydrodynamics simulations describing the evolution of gravitationally unstable gaseous protoplanetary disks. We

Substellar companions and isolated planetary-mass objects from protostellar disc fragmentation

Self-gravitating protostellar discs are unstable to fragmentation if the gas can cool on a time-scale that is short compared with the orbital period. We use a combination of hydrodynamic simulations

Toward a Deterministic Model of Planetary Formation. II. The Formation and Retention of Gas Giant Planets around Stars with a Range of Metallicities

The apparent dependence of detection frequency of extrasolar planets on the metallicity of their host stars is investigated with Monte Carlo simulations using a deterministic core-accretion planet

Models of the in Situ Formation of Detected Extrasolar Giant Planets

Abstract We present numerical simulations of the formation of the planetary companions to 47 UMa, ρ CrB, and 51 Peg. They are assumed to have formed in situ according to the basic model that a core

Formation of Giant Planets: Dependences on Core Accretion Rate and Grain Opacity

We have investigated the formation of gaseous envelopes of giant planets with wide ranges of parameters through quasi-static evolutionary simulations. In the nucleated instability model, rapid gas

Rapid Formation of Outer Giant Planets by Disk Instability

The formation mechanism of the ice giant planets is uncertain. A new hypothesis envisions rapid formation of several gaseous protoplanets in a marginally gravitationally unstable protoplanetary disk,

TLDR
New three-dimensional, "locally isothermal," hydrodynamical models without velocity damping show that a disk instability can form Jupiter-mass clumps, implying that disk instability could obviate the core accretion mechanism in the solar nebula and elsewhere.

Formation of Giant Planets

This is a descriptive and non-mathematical summary of giant planet formation theories. There are two end-member models, core accretion and disk instability. In the core accretion model, several to
