About a fifth of the exoplanetary systems that have been discovered contain a so-called hot-Jupiter – a giant planet orbiting within 0.1 AU of the central star. Since these stars are typically of the F/G spectral type, the orbits of any terrestrial planets in their habitable zones at ~1 AU should be dynamically stable. However, because hot-Jupiters are thought to have formed in the outer regions of a protoplanetary disc, and to have then migrated through the terrestrial planet zone to their… Expand
Terrestrial planet formation in low-eccentricity warm-Jupiter systems
Context. Extrasolar giant planets are found to orbit their host stars with a broad range of semi-major axes 0.02 ≤ a ≤ 6 AU. Current theories suggest that giant planets orbiting at distances betweenExpand
The effect of type I migration on the formation of terrestrial planets in hot-Jupiter systems
Context. Our previous models of a giant planet migrating through an inner protoplanet/planetesimal disk find that the giant shepherds a portion of the material it encounters into interior orbits,Expand
The Formation and Dynamics of Super-Earth Planets
Super-Earths, objects slightly larger than Earth and slightly smaller than Uranus, have found a special place in exoplanetary science. As a new class of planetary bodies, these objects haveExpand
Keck/HIRES precision radial velocities of HD 207832 indicate the presence of two Jovian-type planetary companions in Keplerian orbits around this G star. The planets have minimum masses of Msin i =Expand
Super-Earths: a new class of planetary bodies
Super-Earths, a class of planetary bodies with masses ranging from a few Earth-masses to slightly smaller than Uranus, have recently found a special place in exoplanetary science. Being slightlyExpand
On the detection of (habitable) super-Earths around low-mass stars using Kepler and transit timing variation method
We present the results of an extensive study of the detectability of Earth-sized planets and super-Earths in the habitable zones of cool and low-mass stars using transit timing variation method. WeExpand
Formation of Solar system analogues - II. Post-gas-phase growthand water accretion in extended discs via N-body simulations
This work is the second part of a project that attempts to analyze the formation of Solar system analogues (SSAs) from the gaseous to the post-gas phase, in a self-consistently way. In the firstExpand
Origin of volatiles in the main belt
We propose a scenario for the formation of the main belt in which asteroids incorporated icy particles formed in the outer solar nebula. We calculate the composition of icy planetesimals formedExpand


On the formation of terrestrial planets in hot-Jupiter systems
Context. There are numerous extrasolar giant planets which orbit close to their central stars. These “hot-Jupiters” probably formed in the outer, cooler regions of their protoplanetary disks, andExpand
The formation and habitability of terrestrial planets in the presence of close-in giant planets
‘Hot jupiters,’ giant planets with orbits very close to their parent stars, are thought to form farther away and migrate inward via interactions with a massive gas disk. If a giant planet forms andExpand
Oligarchic and giant impact growth of terrestrial planets in the presence of gas giant planet migration
Giant planets found orbiting close to their central stars, the so-called hot Jupiters, are thought to have originally formed in the cooler outer regions of a protoplanetary disk and then to haveExpand
Survival of Terrestrial Planets in the Presence of Giant Planet Migration
The presence of "hot Jupiters," Jovian-mass planets with very short orbital periods orbiting nearby main-sequence stars, has been proposed to be primarily due to the orbital migration of planetsExpand
Timescales for planetary accretion and the structure of the protoplanetary disk
Abstract This paper outlines a unified scenario for Solar System formation consistent with astrophysical constraints. Jupiter's core could have grown by runaway accretion of planetesimals to a massExpand
A Reduced Efficiency of Terrestrial Planet Formation following Giant Planet Migration
Substantial orbital migration of massive planets may occur in most extrasolar planetary systems. Since migration is likely to occur after a significant fraction of the dust has been locked up intoExpand
Prospects for Habitable “Earths” in Known Exoplanetary Systems
We have examined whether putative Earth-mass planets could remain confined to the habitable zones (HZs) of the 111 exoplanetary systems confirmed by 2004 August. We find that in about half of theseExpand
Dynamical habitability of known extrasolar planetary systems
Habitability is usually defined as the requirement for a terrestrial planet's atmosphere to sustain liquid water. This definition can be complemented by the dynamical requirement that other planetsExpand
Giant planets in circumstellar disks can migrate inward from their initial (formation) positions. Radial migration is caused by inward torques between the planet and the disk, by outward torquesExpand
Formation of gas and ice giant planets
Abstract Agreement about planetary formation processes deteriorates sharply with distance from the Sun. While the terrestrial planets are widely believed to have formed from the collisionalExpand
