  • Observations have revealed a large variety of structures (global asymmetries, warps, belts, rings) and dynamical phenomena (“falling-evaporating bodies” or FEBs, the “ β  Pic dust stream”) in the disk of β  Pictoris, most of which may indicate the presence of one or more planets orbiting the star. Because planets of β  Pic have not been detected by observations yet, we use dynamical simulations to find “numerical evidence” for a planetary system. We show that one planet at 12 AU with a mass of… CONTINUE READING
