Orbital evolution of eccentric planets in radiative discs
Context. With an average eccentricity of about 0.29, the eccentricity distribution of extrasolar planets is markedly different from the solar system. Among other scenarios considered, it has been
Dynamical Outcomes of Planet-Planet Scattering
Observations in the past decade have revealed extrasolar planets with a wide range of orbital semimajor axes and eccentricities. Based on the present understanding of planet formation via core
Extrasolar Planet Eccentricities from Scattering in the Presence of Residual Gas Disks
Gravitational scattering between massive planets has been invoked to explain the eccentricity distribution of extrasolar planets. For scattering to occur, the planets must either form in—or migrate
Origins of Eccentric Extrasolar Planets: Testing the Planet-Planet Scattering Model
In planetary systems with two or more giant planets, dynamical instabilities can lead to collisions or ejections through strong planet-planet scattering. Previous studies for initial conditions with
Dynamically Unstable Planetary Systems Emerging Out of Gas Disks
One of the most surprising properties of extrasolar planets is the eccentricity of their orbits, which vary from nearly circular (e ∼ 0) to highly eccentric ones (up to e ∼ 0.9). Planet-planet
Terrestrial planet formation in low-eccentricity warm-Jupiter systems
Context. Extrasolar giant planets are found to orbit their host stars with a broad range of semi-major axes 0.02 ≤ a ≤ 6 AU. Current theories suggest that giant planets orbiting at distances between
Highly inclined and eccentric massive planets - I. Planet-disc interactions
In the Solar System, planets have a small inclination with respect to the equatorial plane of the Sun, but there is evidence that in extrasolar systems the inclination can be very high. This
EFFECTS OF DYNAMICAL EVOLUTION OF GIANT PLANETS ON SURVIVAL OF TERRESTRIAL PLANETS
The orbital distributions of currently observed extrasolar giant planets allow marginally stable orbits for hypothetical, terrestrial planets. In this paper, we propose that many of these systems may
A limit on eccentricity growth from global 3D simulations of disc-planet interactions
We present high resolution 3-D simulations of the planet-disc interaction using smoothed particle hydrodynamics, to investigate the possibility of driving eccentricity growth by this mechanism. For
Planet-planet scattering in planetesimal disks II: Predictions for outer extrasolar planetary systems
We develop an idealized dynamical model to predict the typical properties of outer extrasolar planetary systems, at radii comparable to the Jupiter-to-Neptune region of the solar system. The model is

EVOLUTION OF GIANT PLANETS IN ECCENTRIC DISKS
We investigate the interaction between a giant planet and a viscous circumstellar disk by means of high-resolution, two-dimensional hydrodynamic simulations. We consider planetary masses that range
Eccentricity Evolution for Planets in Gaseous Disks
At least several percent of solar-type stars possess giant planets. Surprisingly, most move on orbits of substantial eccentricity. We investigate the hypothesis that interactions between a giant
ORBITAL EVOLUTION AND MIGRATION OF GIANT PLANETS: MODELING EXTRASOLAR PLANETS
Giant planets in circumstellar disks can migrate inward from their initial (formation) positions. Radial migration is caused by inward torques between the planet and the disk, by outward torques
Resonant Inclination Excitation of Migrating Giant Planets
The observed orbits of extrasolar planets suggest that many giant planets migrate a considerable distance toward their parent star as a result of interactions with the protoplanetary disk and that
Orbital eccentricity growth through disc-companion tidal interaction
We investigate the driving of orbital eccentricity of giant protoplanets and brown dwarfs through disc-companion tidal interactions by means of two dimensional numerical simulations. We consider disc
Planets Orbiting Other Suns
ABSTRACT After a century fraught with false claims, evidence for planets around other stars finally appears robust. Infrared imaging and spectroscopy of disks around stars foreshadow detailed models
Dynamical Instabilities and the Formation of Extrasolar Planetary Systems
The existence of a dominant massive planet, Jupiter, in our solar system, although perhaps essential for long-term dynamical stability and the development of life, may not be typical of planetary
