Planet formation occurs within the gas- and dust-rich environments of protoplanetary disks. Observations of these objects show that the growth of primordial submicron-sized particles into larger aggregates occurs at the earliest evolutionary stages of the disks. However, theoretical models of particle growth that use the Smoluchowski equation to describe collisional coagulation and fragmentation have so far failed to produce large particles while maintaining a significant population of small… Expand

TLDR
It is shown that, for a single-sized dust population, velocity driving by the disc's gravitational perturbations is only effective for St > 3, while coupling to the gas velocity dominates otherwise, and a criterion for understanding this result is developed in terms of the stopping distance being of the order of the disc scaleheight.

Dust Evolution in Protoplanetary Disks
(abridged) In the core accretion scenario for the formation of planetary rocky cores, the first step toward planet formation is the growth of dust grains into larger and larger aggregates andExpand
Dust Evolution in Protoplanetary Discs and the Formation of Planetesimals
After 25 years of laboratory research on protoplanetary dust agglomeration, a consistent picture of the various processes that involve colliding dust aggregates has emerged. Besides sticking,Expand
Erosion and the limits to planetesimal growth
Context. The coagulation of microscopic dust into planetesimals is the first step towards the formation of planets. The composition, size, and shape of the growing aggregates determine the efficiencyExpand
Planetesimal formation via sweep-up growth at the inner edge of dead zones
The early stages of planet formation are still not well understood. Coagulation models have revealed numerous obstacles to the dust growth, such as the bouncing, fragmentation and radial driftExpand
The role of pebble fragmentation in planetesimal formation I. Experimental study
Previous work on protoplanetary dust growth shows a halt at centimeter sizes owing to the occurrence of bouncing at velocities of 0.1 m s-1 and fragmentation at velocities ≳;1 m s-1. To overcomeExpand
Dust Coagulation Regulated by Turbulent Clustering in Protoplanetary Disks
The coagulation of dust particles is a key process in planetesimal formation. However, the radial drift and bouncing barriers are not completely resolved, especially for silicate dust. Since theExpand
Five steps in the evolution from protoplanetary to debris disk
The protoplanetary disks seen around Herbig Ae stars eventually dissipate leaving just a tenuous debris disk, comprised of planetesimals and the dust derived from them, as well as possibly gas andExpand
Dust Evolution and the Formation of Planetesimals
The solid content of circumstellar disks is inherited from the interstellar medium: dust particles of at most a micrometer in size. Protoplanetary disks are the environment where these dust grainsExpand
Modeling dust growth in protoplanetary disks: The breakthrough case
Context. Dust coagulation in protoplanetary disks is one of the initial steps toward planet formation. Simple toy models are often not su cient to cover the complexity of the coagulation process, andExpand
