  • Well before the existence of exo-solar systems was confirmed, it was accepted knowledge that most—if not all—stars possess circumstellar material during the first one-to-several million years of their pre-main sequence lives, and thus that these systems commonly have the potential to form planets. Here, I summarize current understanding regarding the evolution of protoplanetary disks.
