Using detailed numerical simulations, we study the formation of bodies near the deuterium-burning limit according to the core-nucleated giant planet accretion scenario. The objects, with heavy-element cores in the range 5–30 M⊕, are assumed to accrete gas up to final masses of 10–15 Jupiter masses (MJup). After the formation process, which lasts 1–5 Myr and which ends with a “cold-start,” low-entropy configuration, the bodies evolve at constant mass up to an age of several Gyr. Deuterium… 

Final Masses of Giant Planets. III. Effect of Photoevaporation and a New Planetary Migration Model

We herein develop a new simple model for giant planet formation that predicts the final mass of a giant planet born in a given disk by adding the disk mass loss due to photoevaporation and a new type

IN SITU AND EX SITU FORMATION MODELS OF KEPLER 11 PLANETS

We present formation simulations of the six Kepler 11 planets. Models assume either in situ or ex situ assembly, the latter with migration, and are evolved to the estimated age of the system, .

Evidence of an Upper Bound on the Masses of Planets and Its Implications for Giant Planet Formation

Celestial bodies with a mass of have been found orbiting nearby stars. It is unknown whether these objects formed like gas-giant planets through core accretion or like stars through gravitational

The Planetary Accretion Shock. II. Grid of Postshock Entropies and Radiative Shock Efficiencies for Nonequilibrium Radiation Transport

In the core-accretion formation scenario of gas giants, most of the gas accreting onto a planet is processed through an accretion shock. In this series of papers we study this shock because it is key

Grain opacity and the bulk composition of extrasolar planets - I. Results from scaling the ISM opacity

The opacity due to grains in the envelope of a protoplanet regulates the accretion rate of gas during formation, thus the final bulk composition of planets with primordial H/He is a function of it.

Global 3D radiation-hydrodynamic simulations of gas accretion: Opacity-dependent growth of Saturn-mass planets

The full spatial structure and temporal evolution of the accretion flow into the envelopes of growing gas giants in their nascent discs is only accessible in simulations. Such simulations are

Thermodynamics of giant planet formation: shocking hot surfaces on circumplanetary discs

The luminosity of young giant planets can inform about their formation and accretion history. The directly imaged planets detected so far are consistent with the ‘hot-start’ scenario of high entropy

Exploring the formation by core accretion and the luminosity evolution of directly imaged planets

Context. A low-mass companion to the two-solar mass star HIP 65426 has recently been detected by SPHERE at around 100 au from its host. Explaining the presence of super-Jovian planets at large

Evolution of Migrating Planets Undergoing Gas Accretion

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

THE DEUTERIUM-BURNING MASS LIMIT FOR BROWN DWARFS AND GIANT PLANETS

There is no universally acknowledged criterion to distinguish brown dwarfs from planets. Numerous studies have used or suggested a definition based on an object's mass, taking the ∼13 Jupiter mass

Deuterium burning in objects forming via the core accretion scenario - Brown dwarfs or planets?

Aims. Our aim is to study deuterium burning in objects forming according to the core accretion scenario in the hot and cold start assumption and what minimum deuterium burning mass limit is found for

Orbital Migration and Mass Accretion of Protoplanets in Three-dimensional Global Computations with Nested Grids

We investigate the evolution of protoplanets with different masses embedded in an accretion disk, via global fully three-dimensional hydrodynamical simulations. We consider a range of planetary

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

Traditional thermal evolution models of giant planets employ arbitrary initial conditions selected more for computational expediency than physical accuracy. Since the initial conditions are

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,
