Prentice (1978a) in his modern Laplacian theory of the origin of the solar system has established the scenario of the formation of the solar system on the basis of the usual laws of conservation of mass and angular momentum and the concept of supersonic turbulent convection that he has developed. In this, he finds the ratio of the orbital radii of successively disposed gaseous rings to be a constant ∼- 1.69. This serves to provide a physical understanding of the Titius-Bode law of planetary… Expand
Planetary distance law and resonance
The relation between the planetary distance law and the resonant structures in the solar system and in the satellite systems is shown, in that, the resonance relation has been expressed in terms ofExpand
Titius-Bode's Relation and Distribution of Exoplanets
The distance distribution in our planetary system has been a controversial matter. Two kinds of important issues on Titius-Bode’s relation have been discussed up to now: one is if there is a simpleExpand
Planetary Distance Law and Resonance
In this paper the relation between the planetary distance law and the resonant structures is shown, in that the resonance relation has been expressed in terms of Roche’s constant (RawalExpand
TITIUS-BODE'S Relation and 55 Cancri
Two kinds of important issues on Titius-Bode`s relation have been discussed up to now: one is if there is a simple mathematical relation between distances of natural bodies orbiting a central body,Expand
A hypothesis on the Oort clouds of planets
Although, we have no quantitative arguments to prove, but we have good reasoning to believe that the Oort clouds existed surrounding the planets. The short period comets, Apollo-Amor-Toro-asteroidsExpand
Contractions of subsolar nebulae
The present paper attempts to study the contractions of subsolar nebulae along the lines with contraction of the solar nebula.
Planetary distance law
A general form of the planetary distance law has been proposed in this paper.


Contraction of the solar nebula
The concept of Roche limit is applied to the Laplacian theory of the origin of the solar system to study the contraction of a spherical gas cloud (solar nebula). In the process of contraction of theExpand
Origin of the solar system
AbstractA theory for the origin of the solar system, which is based on ideas of supersonic turbulent convection and indicates the possibility that the original Laplacian hypothesis may by valid, isExpand
The evolution of the solar system
A brief description of the solar system is given which highlights those features that a plausible theory should explain. A review of theories up to 1960 sets the scene for the description of moreExpand
Origin and evolution of the solar system, II
Abstract(7)Formation of celestial bodies. The basic concepts of the accretional process are discussed, and the inadequacy of the contractional model is pointed out. A comparison is made between theExpand
Resonant structures in the solar system
The resonance theory is discussed with respect to the Solar System with a view to show that every triad of successive planets in the Solar System follows Laplace's resonance relation. With rings nowExpand

Evidence for a distorted solar core rotating with a 12.4-day period
The periodicity recently discovered in the solar Doppler velocity may be due to an Eddington–Sweet current driven in the photosphere by a distorted gravitational potential rotating rigidly with aExpand

Bode's Law and the Resonant Structure of the Solar System
In this discussion of Bode's law Dermott considers whether the law could have arisen by chance and how the near resonances between a number of orbits in the Solar System may have developed.
