When the Sun ascends the red giant branch (RGB), its luminosity will increase and all the planets will receive much greater irradiation than they do now. Jupiter, in particular, might end up more highly irradiated than the hot Neptune GJ 436b and, hence, could appropriately be termed a hot Jupiter. When their stars go through the RGB or asymptotic giant branch stages, many of the currently known Jupiter-mass planets in several-AU orbits will receive levels of irradiation comparable to the hot… Expand

Radio Emission from Red-Giant Hot Jupiters
When planet-hosting stars evolve off the main sequence and go through the red-giant branch, the stars become orders of magnitudes more luminous and, at the same time, lose mass at much higher ratesExpand
Re-inflated Warm Jupiters Around Red Giants
Since the discovery of the first transiting hot Jupiters, models have sought to explain the anomalously large radii of highly irradiated gas giants. We now know that the size of hot Jupiter radiusExpand
The fates of Solar system analogues with one additional distant planet
The potential existence of a distant planet (“Planet Nine”) in the Solar system has prompted a re-think about the evolution of planetary systems. As the Sun transitions from a main sequence star intoExpand
THERMAL PROCESSES GOVERNING HOT-JUPITER RADII
There have been many proposed explanations for the larger-than-expected radii of some transiting hot Jupiters, including either stellar or orbital energy deposition deep in the atmosphere or deep inExpand
Probing Planetary Formation and Evolution: Transiting Planets and Occulting Disks
The circumstellar environments of young stellar objects (YSOs) involve complex dynamical interactions between dust and gas that directly influence the formation of planets. However, our understandingExpand
The properties of planets around giant stars
Context: More than 50 exoplanets have been found around giant stars, revealing different properties when compared to planets orbiting solar-type stars. In particular, they are Super-Jupiters and areExpand
Simulations of two-planet systems through all phases of stellar evolution: implications for the instability boundary and white dwarf pollution
Exoplanets have been observed at many stages of their host star's life, including the main-sequence (MS), subgiant and red giant branch stages. Also, polluted white dwarfs (WDs) likely representExpand
The grain size survival threshold in one-planet post-main-sequence exoplanetary systems
The size distribution and orbital architecture of dust, grains, boulders, asteroids, and major planets during the giant branch phases of evolution dictate the preponderance and observability of theExpand
Planetary influences on photometric variations of the extreme helium subdwarf KIC 10449976
We propose that the unstable 3.9days photometric periodicity of the hot subdwarf (sdO) KIC10449976 results from a tidally locked planet that is heated to 5000K by the UV radiation from the hot sdOExpand
Radial Velocity Observations and Light Curve Noise Modeling Confirm That Kepler-91b is a Giant Planet Orbiting a Giant Star
Kepler-91b is a rare example of a transiting hot Jupiter around a red giant star, providing the possibility to study the formation and composition of hot Jupiters under different conditions comparedExpand

We examine the spectra and infrared colors of the cool, methane-dominated atmospheres at Teff ≤ 1400 K expected for young gas giant planets. We couple these spectral calculations to an updatedExpand

Can Planets Survive Stellar Evolution
We study the survival of gas planets around stars with masses in the range 1-5 M☉, as these stars evolve off the main sequence. We show that planets with masses smaller than one Jupiter mass do notExpand

Hot Jupiters, with atmospheric temperatures T 1000 K, have residual thermal ionization levels sufficient for the interaction of ions with the planetary magnetic field to result in a sizable magneticExpand
Ohmic Dissipation in the Atmospheres of Hot Jupiters
Hot Jupiter atmospheres exhibit fast, weakly ionized winds. The interaction of these winds with the planetary magnetic field generates drag on the winds and leads to ohmic dissipation of the inducedExpand
