Using Doppler spectroscopy to detect the reflex motion of the nearby star, 51 Pegasi, Mayor & Queloz (1995) claim to have discovered a giant planet in a 0.05 AU, 4.23 day orbit. They estimate its mass to be in the range 0.5-2 Jupiter masses, but are not able to determine its nature or origin. Including the effects of the severe stellar insolation implied, we extend the theory of giant planets we have recently developed to encompass those at very small orbital distances. Our calculations can be… CONTINUE READING
