High-inclination circumplanetary orbits that are gravitationally perturbed by the central star can undergo Kozai oscillations—large-amplitude, coupled variations in the orbital eccentricity and inclination. We first study how this effect is modified by incorporating perturbations from the planetary oblateness. Tremaine et al. found that, for planets with obliquities >68. ◦ 875, orbits in the equilibrium local Laplace plane are unstable to eccentricity perturbations over a finite radial range… Expand
