Origins of Hot Jupiters

  title={Origins of Hot Jupiters},
  author={R. Dawson and J. Johnson},
  journal={arXiv: Earth and Planetary Astrophysics},
Hot Jupiters were the first exoplanets to be discovered around main sequence stars and astonished us with their close-in orbits. They are a prime example of how exoplanets have challenged our textbook, solar-system inspired story of how planetary systems form and evolve. More than twenty years after the discovery of the first hot Jupiter, there is no consensus on their predominant origin channel. Three classes of hot Jupiter creation hypotheses have been proposed: in situ formation, disk… Expand

In situ formation of hot Jupiters with companion super-Earths
Observations have confirmed the existence of multiple-planet systems containing a hot Jupiter and smaller planetary companions. Examples include WASP-47, Kepler-730, and TOI-1130. We examine theExpand
TESS Spots a Hot Jupiter with an Inner Transiting Neptune
Hot Jupiters are rarely accompanied by other planets within a factor of a few in orbital distance. Previously, only two such systems have been found. Here, we report the discovery of a third systemExpand
No further evidence for a transiting inner companion to the hot Jupiter HATS-50b
Most hot Jupiter exoplanets do not have a nearby planetary companion in their planetary system. One remarkable exception is the system of WASP-47 with an inner and outer nearby companion to a hotExpand
Highlights of exoplanetary science from Spitzer
Observations of extrasolar planets were not projected to be a substantial part of the Spitzer Space Telescope’s mission when it was conceived and designed. Nevertheless, Spitzer was the firstExpand
Formation of hot Jupiters through secular chaos and dynamical tides
The population of giant planets on short-period orbits can potentially be explained by some flavours of high-eccentricity migration. In this paper we investigate one such mechanism involving "secularExpand
Cool Jupiters greatly outnumber their toasty siblings : Occurrence rates from the Anglo-Australian Planet Search
Our understanding of planetary systems different to our own has grown dramatically in the past 30 yr. However, our efforts to ascertain the degree to which the Solar system is abnormal or unique haveExpand
The Young Planetary System K2-25: Constraints on Companions and Starspots
The abundance of planets with orbital periods of a few to tens of days suggests that exoplanets experience complex dynamical histories. Planets in young stellar clusters or associations haveExpand
Photoevaporation and high-eccentricity migration created the sub-Jovian desert
The mass-period or radius-period distribution of close-in exoplanets shows a paucity of intermediate mass/size (sub-Jovian) planets with periods ~< 3 days. We show that this sub-Jovian desert can beExpand
Investigating the Development of Hot Jupiters and Rogue Planets through Universe Sandbox 2
This project explores the theory of high-eccentricity gas giant migration. The purpose of this project is to determine if the creation of rogue planets is the most probable effect of proto-HotExpand
Formation of hot Jupiters through disk migration and evolving stellar tides
Here we address the hot Jupiter (hJ) pile-up at 0.05 AU around young solar-type stars observed in stellar radial velocity surveys, the hJ longterm orbital stability in the presence of stellar tides,Expand


LAMOST telescope reveals that Neptunian cousins of hot Jupiters are mostly single offspring of stars that are rich in heavy elements
A population of short-period, Neptune-size planets sharing key similarities with hot Jupiters is discovered: both populations are preferentially hosted by metal-rich stars, and both are preferentialially found in Kepler systems with single-transiting planets. Expand
Moderately eccentric warm Jupiters from secular interactions with exterior companions
Recent studies have proposed that most warm Jupiters (WJs, giant planets with semi-major axes in the range of 0.1-1 AU) probably form in-situ, or arrive in their observed orbits through diskExpand
Relationship Between Thermal Tides and Radius Excess
Close-in extrasolar gas giants -- the hot Jupiters -- display departures in radius above the zero-temperature solution, the radius excess, that are anomalously high. The radius excess of hot JupitersExpand
Diffusive Tidal Evolution for Migrating Hot Jupiters
I consider a Jovian planet on a highly eccentric orbit around its host star, a situation produced by secular interactions with its planetary or stellar companions. The tidal interactions at everyExpand
The HARPS search for southern extra-solar planets XXXIV. Occurrence, mass distribution and orbital properties of super-Earths and Neptune-mass planets ?
Aims. We report on the results of an 8-year survey carried out at the La Silla Observatory with the HARPS spectrograph to detect and characterize planets in the super-Earth and Neptune mass regime.Expand
The Rossiter-McLaughlin effect in Exoplanet Research
The Rossiter-McLaughlin effect occurs during a planet's transit. It provides the main means of measuring the sky-projected spin-orbit angle between a planet's orbital plane, and its host star'sExpand
