Many extrasolar planets discovered over the past decade are gas giants in tight orbits around their host stars. Due to the difficulties of forming these "hot Jupiters" in situ, they are generally assumed to have migrated to their present orbits through interactions with their nascent disks. In this paper, we present a systematic study of giant planet migration in power-law disks. We find that the planetary migration rate is proportional to the disk surface density. This is inconsistent with the… Expand
