Dynamical Origin of Extrasolar Planet Eccentricity Distribution

  title={Dynamical Origin of Extrasolar Planet Eccentricity Distribution},
  author={Mario Juric and S. Tremaine},
In the past decade we have witnessed the discoveries of over 200 extrasolar planets, and the measurements of their unexpected dynamical properties. Specifically, the eccentricities of currently known extrasolar planets exhibit a distribution unlike that of the solar system, with moderately and highly eccentric planets being the rule rather than the exception. In this paper we explore a possible dynamical origin of the observed eccentricity distribution through numerical integrations of… CONTINUE READING
