Habitable planets are likely to be broadly Earth-like in composition, mass, and size. Masses are likely to be within a factor of a few of the Earth's mass. Currently, we do not have sufficiently sensitive techniques to detect Earth-mass planets, except in rare circumstances. It is thus necessary to model the known exoplanetary systems. In particular, we need to establish whether Earth-mass planets could be present in the classical habitable zone (HZ) or whether the giant planets that we know to… Expand
