We study the evolution of planetesimals in evolved gaseous disks, which orbit a solar-mass star and harbor a Jupiter-mass planet at a_p~5AU. The gas dynamics is modeled with a three-dimensional hydrodynamics code that employes nested-grids and achieves a resolution of one Jupiter's radius in the circumplanetary disk. The code models solids as individual particles. Planetesimals are subjected to gravitational forces by the star and the planet, drag force by the gas, disruption via ram pressure… Expand
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 decoupledExpand
Capture of planetesimals by waning circumplanetary gas disks
When gas giant protoplanets grow sufficiently massive, circumplanetary disks would form. While solid bodies captured by the circumplanetary disks likely contribute to the growth of the planets andExpand
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 theExpand
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 intoExpand
Dust Evolution and Satellitesimal Formation in Circumplanetary Disks
It is believed that satellites of giant planets form in circumplanetary disks. Many of the previous contributions assumed that their formation process proceeds similarly to rocky planet formation,Expand
How planets grow by pebble accretion
Proto-planets embedded in their natal disks acquire hot envelopes as they grow and accrete solids. This ensures that the material they accrete - pebbles, as well as (small) planetesimals - willExpand
Effects of the Planetary Temperature on the Circumplanetary Disk and on the Gap
Circumplanetary disks 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 theirExpand
Shock-driven Accretion in Circumplanetary Disks: Observables and Satellite Formation
Circumplanetary disks (CPDs) control the growth of planets, supply material for satellites to form, and provide observational signatures of young forming planets. We have carried out two dimensionalExpand
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 focused on the formation of satellites starting from satellitesimals, the question ofExpand
Planet formation signposts: observability of circumplanetary disks via gas kinematics
The identification of on-going planet formation requires the finest angular resolutions and deepest sensitivities in observations inspired by state-of-the-art numerical simulations. HydrodynamicExpand

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,Expand

Interactions of planetesimals with protoplanetary atmospheres
Abstract We compute the interaction of planetesimals with the envelopes of growing giant planets that form by the “core-instability” mechanism. According to this mechanism, a core grows by theExpand
