  • Planetary-scale collisions are common during the last stages of formation of solid planets, including the Solar system terrestrial planets. The problem of growing planets has been divided into studying the gravitational interaction of embryos relevant in million year timescales and treated with N-body codes and the collision between objects with a timescale of hours to days and treated with smoothed-particle hydrodynamics. These are now being coupled with simple parameterized models. We set out… CONTINUE READING
