Orbital Perturbations of the Galilean Satellites During Planetary Encounters
The Nice model of the dynamical instability and migration of the giant planets can explain many properties of the present solar system, and can be used to constrain its early architecture. In the
Eccentric Early Migration of Neptune
The dynamical structure of the Kuiper Belt can be used as a clue to the formation and evolution of the solar system, planetary systems in general, and Neptune’s early orbital history in particular.
NEPTUNE ON TIPTOES: DYNAMICAL HISTORIES THAT PRESERVE THE COLD CLASSICAL KUIPER BELT
The current dynamical structure of the Kuiper Belt was shaped by the orbital evolution of the giant planets, especially Neptune, during the era following planet formation when the giant planets may
Evidence from the asteroid belt for a violent past evolution of Jupiter's orbit
We use the current orbital structure of large (>50 km) asteroids in the main asteroid belt to constrain the evolution of the giant planets when they migrated from their primordial orbits to their
GENERATION OF HIGHLY INCLINED TRANS-NEPTUNIAN OBJECTS BY PLANET NINE
The trans-Neptunian region of the solar system exhibits an intricate dynamical structure, much of which can be explained by an instability-driven orbital history of the giant planets. However, the

This model not only naturally explains the Late Heavy Bombardment, but also reproduces the observational constraints of the outer Solar System.

TLDR
This model reproduces all the important characteristics of the giant planets' orbits, namely their final semimajor axes, eccentricities and mutual inclinations, provided that Jupiter and Saturn crossed their 1:2 orbital resonance.
