Abstract The formation of Jupiter is modeled via core-nucleated accretion, and the planet's evolution is simulated up to the present epoch. Throughout the phases when the planet acquires most of the heavy-element content, the calculation of solids' accretion accounts for interactions with an evolving disk of planetesimals. The phase of growth from an embryo of a few hundred kilometers in radius until the time when the accretion of gas overtakes solids' accretion was presented by D'Angelo et al… Expand

Oort cloud Ecology
Jan Hendrik Oort hypothesized, based on a spike in the reciprocal orbital separation at 1/a < ∼ 10−4 au−1, the existence of a distant cloud of cometary objects that orbit the Sun. The Oort cloud isExpand
Tracing the Formation History of Giant Planets in Protoplanetary Disks with Carbon, Oxygen, Nitrogen, and Sulfur
The composition of giant planets is imprinted by their migration history and the compositional structure of their hosting disks. Studies in recent literature have investigated how the abundances of CExpand


Accretion of the gaseous envelope of Jupiter around a 5–10 Earth-mass core
Abstract New numerical simulations of the formation and evolution of Jupiter are presented. The formation model assumes that first a solid core of several M ⊕ accretes from the planetesimals in theExpand
Models of Jupiter's growth incorporating thermal and hydrodynamic constraints
We model the growth of Jupiter via core nucleated accretion, applying constraints from hydrodynamical processes that result from the disk{planet interaction. We compute the planet’s internalExpand
New Formation Models for the Kepler-36 System
Formation of the planets in the Kepler-36 system is modeled by detailed numerical simulations according to the core-nucleated accretion scenario. The standard model is updated to include theExpand
The formation of Jupiter by hybrid pebble–planetesimal accretion
The standard model for giant planet formation is based on the accretion of solids by a growing planetary embryo, followed by rapid gas accretion once the planet exceeds a so-called critical mass1.Expand
Growth of Jupiter: Enhancement of core accretion by a voluminous low-mass envelope
Abstract We present calculations of the early stages of the formation of Jupiter via core nucleated accretion and gas capture. The core begins as a seed body of about 350 km in radius and orbits in aExpand
Accretion in the ρ-Ophiuchi pre-main sequence stars
Aims. The aim of this paper is to provide a measurement of the mass accretion rate in a large, complete sample of objects in the core of the star forming region p Oph. Methods. The sample includesExpand
Models of the in Situ Formation of Detected Extrasolar Giant Planets
Abstract We present numerical simulations of the formation of the planetary companions to 47 UMa, ρ CrB, and 51 Peg. They are assumed to have formed in situ according to the basic model that a coreExpand
The Absolute Chronology and Thermal Processing of Solids in the Solar Protoplanetary Disk
U-corrected Pb-Pb dating from primitive meteorites indicates that chondrule formation started contemporaneously with CAIs and lasted ~3 million years, suggesting that the formation ofCAIs and chondrules reflects a process intrinsically linked to the secular evolution of accretionary disks. Expand
Capture and Evolution of Planetesimals in Circumjovian Disks
We study the evolution of planetesimals in evolved gaseous disks, which orbit a solar-mass star and harbor a Jupiter-mass planet at a_p~5AU. The gas dynamics is modeled with a three-dimensionalExpand
Timescales for planetary accretion and the structure of the protoplanetary disk
Abstract This paper outlines a unified scenario for Solar System formation consistent with astrophysical constraints. Jupiter's core could have grown by runaway accretion of planetesimals to a massExpand
