  • Observations of structure in circumstellar debris discs provide circumstantial evidence for the presence of massive planets at large (several tens of astronomical units) orbital radii, where the time-scale for planet formation via core accretion is prohibitively long. Here, we investigate whether a population of distant planets can be produced via outward migration subsequent to formation in the inner disc. Two possibilities for significant outward migration are identified. First, cores that… CONTINUE READING
