  • We present evolutionary models for cool brown dwarfs and extra-solar giant planets. The models re- produce the main trends of observed methane dwarfs in near-IR color-magnitude diagrams. We also present evolutionary models for irradiated planets, coupling for the first time irradiated atmosphere profiles and inner structures. We focus on HD 209458-like systems and show that irradiation effects can substantially affect the ra- dius of sub-jovian mass giant planets. Irradiation effects, however… CONTINUE READING
