This paper considers the stability of tidal equilibria for planetary systems in which stellar rotation provides a significant contribution to the angular momentum budget. We begin by applying classic stability considerations for two bodies to planetary systems — where one mass is much smaller than the other. The application of these stability criteria to a… CONTINUE READING
