The inner solar system possesses a unique orbital structure in which there are no planets inside the Mercury orbit and the mass is concentrated around the Venus and Earth orbits. The origins of these features still remain unclear. We propose a novel concept that the building blocks of the inner solar system formed at the dead-zone inner edge in the early phase of the protosolar disk evolution, where the disk is effectively heated by the disk accretion. First, we compute the dust evolution in a… 


We examine a physical process that leads to the efficient formation of gas giant planets around intermediate-mass stars. In the gaseous protoplanetary disks surrounding rapidly accreting
Close-in Super-Earths: The first and the last stages of planet formation in an MRI-accreting disc
We explore in situ formation and subsequent evolution of close-in super-Earths and mini-Neptunes. We adopt a steady-state inner protoplanetary gas disc structure that arises from viscous accretion
Bifurcation of planetary building blocks during Solar System formation
Numerical models suggest that the compositional fractionation and isotopic dichotomy of the Solar System was initiated by the interplay between disk dynamics, heterogeneous accretion, and internal evolution of forming protoplanets.
Inside-Out Planet Formation
The compact multi-transiting planet systems discovered by Kepler challenge planet formation theories. Formation in situ from disks with radial mass surface density, Σ, profiles similar to the minimum
Formation of terrestrial planets in disks evolving via disk winds and implications for the origin of the solar system's terrestrial planets
Recent three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamical simulations have identified a disk wind by which gas materials are lost from the surface of a protoplanetary disk, which can significantly alter the
Fossilized condensation lines in the Solar System protoplanetary disk
The terrestrial planets and the asteroids dominant in the inner asteroid belt are water poor. However, in the protoplan-etary disk the temperature should have decreased below water-condensation level
3D Radiation Nonideal Magnetohydrodynamical Simulations of the Inner Rim in Protoplanetary Disks
Many planets orbit within an AU of their stars, raising questions about their origins. Particularly puzzling are the planets found near the silicate sublimation front. We investigate conditions near
Trapping solids at the inner edge of the dead zone: 3-D global MHD simulations
Context. The poorly-ionized interior of the protoplanetary disk or "dead zone" is the location where dust coagulation processes may be most efficient. However even here, planetesimal formation may be
Forming the cores of giant planets from the radial pebble flux in protoplanetary discs
The formation of planetary cores must proceed rapidly in order for the giant planets to accrete their gaseous envelopes before the dissipation of the protoplanetary gas disc (less than or similar to
Building the terrestrial planets: Constrained accretion in the inner Solar System
Abstract To date, no accretion model has succeeded in reproducing all observed constraints in the inner Solar System. These constraints include: (1) the orbits, in particular the small
