We analyze the orbital and mass evolution of planets that undergo runaway gas accretion by means of two- and three-dimensional hydrodynamic simulations. The disk torque distribution per unit disk mass as a function of radius provides an important diagnostic for the nature of the disk-planet interactions. We present results of simulations for mass-gaining, migrating planets. For planets with an initial mass of 5 M⊕, which are embedded in disks with standard parameters and which undergo runaway… 
Final Masses of Giant Planets. III. Effect of Photoevaporation and a New Planetary Migration Model
We herein develop a new simple model for giant planet formation that predicts the final mass of a giant planet born in a given disk by adding the disk mass loss due to photoevaporation and a new type
Gas accretion onto a protoplanet and formation of a gas giant planet
We investigate gas accretion on to a protoplanet, by considering the thermal effect of gas in three-dimensional hydrodynamical simulations, in which the wide region from a protoplanetary gas disc to
Planet-Disk Interaction and Orbital Evolution
As planets form and grow within gaseous protoplanetary disks, the mutual gravitational interaction between the disk and planet leads to the exchange of angular momentum and migration of the planet.
Migration of accreting planets in radiative discs from dynamical torques
We present the results of hydrodynamical simulations of the orbital evolution of planets undergoing runaway gas accretion in radiative discs. We consider accreting disc models with constant mass flux
We present formation simulations of the six Kepler 11 planets. Models assume either in situ or ex situ assembly, the latter with migration, and are evolved to the estimated age of the system, .
Planetary Migration: What Does It Mean for Planet Formation?
Gravitational interactions between a planet and its protoplanetary disk change the planet’s orbit, causing the planet to migrate toward or away from its star. Migration rates are poorly constrained
First, we study the final masses of giant planets growing in protoplanetary disks through capture of disk gas, by employing empirical formulae for the gas capture rate and a shallow disk gap model,
Fast migration of low-mass planets in radiative discs
Low-mass planets are known to undergo Type I migration and this process must have played a key role during the evolution of planetary systems. Analytical formulae for the disc torque have been
Gas accretion on to planetary cores: three-dimensional self-gravitating radiation hydrodynamical calculations
We present results from three-dimensional, self-gravitating radiation hydrodynamical models of gas accretion by planetary cores. In some cases, the accretion flow is resolved down to the surface of


Gas Flow across Gaps in Protoplanetary Disks
We analyze the gas accretion flow through a planet-produced gap in a protoplanetary disk. We adopt the α-disk model and ignore effects of planetary migration. We develop a semianalytic,
On the Early Evolution of Forming Jovian Planets. II. Analysis of Accretion and Gravitational Torques
We continue our numerical study of the migration of an already formed proto-Jovian companion embedded in a circumstellar disk. We first study the sensitivity of the planet's migration to its mass
Formation of the Giant Planets by Concurrent Accretion of Solids and Gas
New numerical simulations of the formation of the giant of the second phase. planets are presented, in which for the first time both the gas and The actual rates at which the giant planets accreted
Tidal Barrier and the Asymptotic Mass of Proto-Gas Giant Planets
According to the conventional sequential accretion scenario, observed extrasolar planets acquired their current masses via efficient gas accretion onto super-Earth cores with accretion timescales
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
Models of giant planet formation with migration and disc evolution
We present a new model of giant planet formation that extends the core-accretion model of Pollack et al. (1996, Icarus, 124, 62) to include migration, disc evolution and gap formation. We show that
Orbital Migration and Mass Accretion of Protoplanets in Three-dimensional Global Computations with Nested Grids
We investigate the evolution of protoplanets with different masses embedded in an accretion disk, via global fully three-dimensional hydrodynamical simulations. We consider a range of planetary
Mass flow and accretion through gaps in accretion discs
We study the structure and dynamics of the gap created by a protoplanet in an accretion disc. The hydrodynamic equations for a flat, two-dimensional, non-self-gravitating protostellar accretion disc
The dependence of protoplanet migration rates on co-orbital torques
We investigate the migration rates of high-mass protoplanets embedded in accretion discs via two- and three-dimensional hydrodynamical simulations. The simulations follow the planet's radial motion

We performed two-dimensional local hydrodynamic simulations of the accretion flows onto protoplanets (with different masses Mp and semimajor axis a) from a protoplanetary disk with extremely high
