CAPTURE AND EVOLUTION OF PLANETESIMALS IN CIRCUMJOVIAN DISKS

We study the evolution of planetesimals in evolved gaseous disks that orbit a solar-mass star and harbor a Jupiter-mass planet at a p ≈ 5 ?> AU. The gas dynamics are modeled with a three-dimensional

Giant Planet Formation Models with a Self-consistent Treatment of the Heavy Elements

We present a new numerical framework to model the formation and evolution of giant planets. The code is based on the further development of the stellar evolution toolkit Modules for Experiments in

Jupiter’s heavy-element enrichment expected from formation models

Aims. The goal of this work is to investigate Jupiter’s growth by focusing on the amount of heavy elements accreted by the planet, and to compare this with recent structure models of Jupiter.

Circumplanetary disc or circumplanetary envelope

We present three-dimensional simulations with nested meshes of the dynamics of the gas around a Jupiter mass planet with the JUPITER and FARGOCA codes. We implemented a radiative transfer module into

Planet formation models: the interplay with the planetesimal disc

Context. According to the sequential accretion model (or core-nucleated accretion model), giant planet formation is based first on the formation of a solid core which, when massive enough, can

Hydrodynamics of embedded planets’ first atmospheres – I. A centrifugal growth barrier for 2D flows

In the core accretion paradigm of planet formation, gas giants only form a massive atmosphere after their progenitors exceeded a threshold mass: the critical core mass. Most (exo)planets, being

Accretion disks around Jupiter and Saturn at the stage of regular satellite formation

Modern models of the formation of the regular satellites of giant planets, constructed with consideration for their structure and composition suggest that this process lasted for a considerable

Detailed Calculations of the Efficiency of Planetesimal Accretion in the Core-accretion Model

We present the results of a study of the accretion rate of planetesimals by a growing proto-Jupiter in the core-accretion model. The purpose of our study is to test the assumptions of Pollack et al.

Oligarchic planetesimal accretion and giant planet formation

Aims. In the context of the core instability model, we present calculations of in situ giant planet formation. The oligarchic growth regime of solid protoplanets is the model adopted for the growth

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 core

Aims. In the context of the core instability model, we present calculations of in situ giant planet formation. The oligarchic growth regime of solid protoplanets is the model adopted for the growth

Nebular Gas Drag and Planetary Accretion

Abstract We have studied the orbital dynamics of planetesimals whose decay due to gas drag in the primordial solar nebula causes them to spiral sunward and approach a growing planet. The planet is

Orbital Migration and Mass Accretion of Protoplanets in Three-dimensional Global Computations with Nested Grids

We investigate the evolution of protoplanets with different masses embedded in an accretion disk, via global fully three-dimensional hydrodynamical simulations. We consider a range of planetary

Nested-grid calculations of disk-planet interaction

We study the evolution of embedded protoplanets in a protostellar disk using very high resolution nested- grid computations. This method allows us to perform global simulations of planets orbiting in

Evolution of Migrating Planets Undergoing Gas Accretion

We analyze the orbital and mass evolution of planets that undergo runaway gas accretion by means of two- and three-dimensional hydrodynamic simulations. The disk torque distribution per unit disk

New numerical simulations of the formation of the giant of the second phase. planets are presented, in which for the first time both the gas and The actual rates at which the giant planets accreted

We construct an analytic model for the gas accretion rate onto planets embedded in protoplanetary disks as a function of planetary mass, viscosity, scale height, and unperturbed surface density, and
