  • Abstract This chapter reviews accretion models for Kuiper belt objects (KBOs), discussing in particular the compatibility of the observed properties of the KBO population with the streaming instability paradigm. Then it discusses how the dynamical structure of the KBO population, including the formation of its five subcomponents (cold, hot, resonant, scattered, and fossilized), can be quantitatively understood in the framework of the giant planet instability. We also establish the connections… CONTINUE READING
