  • Context. As of today, over 50 planetary systems have been discovered in binary star systems, some of which have binary separations that are smaller than 20 AU. In these systems the gravitational forces from the binary have a strong influence on the evolution of the protoplanetary disk and hence the planet formation process. Aims. We study the evolution of viscous and radiative circumstellar disks under the influence of a companion star. We focus on the eccentric γ Cephei and α Centauri system… CONTINUE READING
