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 hydrodynamics code that employs nested grids and achieves a resolution of one Jupiter radius in the circumplanetary disk. The code models solids as individual particles. Planetesimals are subjected to gravitational forces by the star and the planet, a drag force by the gas, disruption via ram… 

Distribution of Captured Planetesimals in Circumplanetary Gas Disks and Implications for Accretion of Regular Satellites

Regular satellites of giant planets are formed by accretion of solid bodies in circumplanetary disks. Planetesimals that are moving on heliocentric orbits and are sufficiently large to be decoupled

CAPTURE OF PLANETESIMALS BY WANING CIRCUMPLANETARY GAS DISKS

Circumplanetary disks will form when gas-giant protoplanets grow sufficiently massive. While solid bodies captured by the circumplanetary disks likely contribute to the growth of the planets and

Formation of moon systems around giant planets

The four major satellites of Jupiter, known as the Galilean moons, and Saturn’s most massive satellite, Titan, are believed to have formed in a predominantly gaseous circum-planetary disk during the

Circumplanetary disc or circumplanetary envelope

We present three-dimensional simulations with nested meshes of the dynamics of the gas around a Jupiter mass planet with the JUPITER and FARGOCA codes. We implemented a radiative transfer module into

The fate of planetesimals formed at planetary gap edges

The presence of rings and gaps in protoplanetary discs are often ascribed to planet-disc interactions, where dust and pebbles are trapped at the edges of planetary induced gas gaps. Recent work has

Fragmentation and ablation of the planetesimals in the protoplanetary disks of Jupiter and Saturn

In this study we discuss the capture of bodies into the gaseous disks around young Jupiter and Saturn due to gas drag in the disks. We suppose that solution of the problem will allow estimation of

Dust Evolution and Satellitesimal Formation in Circumplanetary Disks

It is believed that satellites of giant planets form in circumplanetary disks (CPDs). Many of the previous contributions assumed that their formation process proceeds similarly to rocky planet

Effects of the Planetary Temperature on the Circumplanetary Disk and on the Gap

Circumplanetary disks (CPDs) regulate the late accretion to the giant planet and serve as the birthplace for satellites. Understanding their characteristics via simulations also helps to prepare for

Delivery of Pebbles from the Protoplanetary Disk into Circumplanetary Disks

Small bodies likely existed in the late stage of planet formation either as remnants of the planetesimal formation stage or as fragments of larger planetesimals. Recent studies suggest that they may

Satellitesimal Formation via Collisional Dust Growth in Steady Circumplanetary Disks

The icy satellites around Jupiter are considered to have formed in a circumplanetary disk. While previous models have focused on the formation of the satellites starting from satellitesimals, the

Gas Flow across Gaps in Protoplanetary Disks

We analyze the gas accretion flow through a planet-produced gap in a protoplanetary disk. We adopt the α-disk model and ignore effects of planetary migration. We develop a semianalytic,

CAPTURE OF PLANETESIMALS BY GAS DRAG FROM CIRCUMPLANETARY DISKS

Growing giant planets have circumplanetary disks around them in the late stage of their formation if their mass is sufficiently large. We examine capture of relatively large planetesimals that are

ACCRETION OF JUPITER-MASS PLANETS IN THE LIMIT OF VANISHING VISCOSITY

In the core-accretion model, the nominal runaway gas-accretion phase brings most planets to multiple Jupiter masses. However, known giant planets are predominantly Jupiter mass bodies. Obtaining

On the accumulation of planetesimals near disc gaps created by protoplanets

We have performed three-dimensional two-fluid (gas–dust) hydrodynamical models of circumstellar discs with embedded protoplanets (3–333 M⊕) and small solid bodies (radii 10 cm to 10 m). We find that

We analyze the orbital and mass evolution of planets that undergo runaway gas accretion by means of two- and three-dimensional hydrodynamic simulations. The disk torque distribution per unit disk
