This paper describes a model that can explain the observed clumpy structures of debris disks. Clumps arise because after a planetary system forms, its planets migrate because of angular momentum exchange with the remaining planetesimals. Outward migration of the outermost planet traps planetesimals outside its orbit into its resonances, and resonant forces cause azimuthal structure in their distribution. The model is based on numerical simulations of planets of different masses, Mpl, migrating… 
Resonant Structures in Planetesimal Disks due to Planetary Migration
Context. The observed clumpy structures in debris disks are commonly interpreted as particles trapped in mean-motion resonances with an unseen exo-planet. Populating the resonances requires a
Detection and Characterization of Extrasolar Planets through Mean-Motion Resonances. II. The Effect of the Planet's Orbital Eccentricity on Debris Disk Structures
Structures observed in debris disks may be caused by gravitational interaction with planetary or stellar companions. These perturbed disks are often thought to indicate the presence of planets and
Spiral structure when setting up pericentre glow : possible giant planets at hundreds of AU in the HD 141569 disk
This paper discusses the impact of introducing a planet on an eccentric orbit into a dynamically cold planetesimal disk. That planet's secular perturbations cause the orbits of the planetesimals to
On the nature of clumps in debris disks
The azimuthal substructure observed in some debris disks, as exemplified by e Eridani, is usually attributed to resonances with embedded planets. In a standard scenario, the Poynting-Robertson force,
Detection and Characterization of Extrasolar Planets through Mean-Motion Resonances: Simulations of Hypothetical Debris Disks
The gravitational influence of a planet on a nearby disk provides a powerful tool for detecting and studying extrasolar planetary systems. Here we demonstrate that gaps can be opened in dynamically
COLLISIONAL CASCADES IN PLANETESIMAL DISKS. II. EMBEDDED PLANETS
We use a multiannulus planetesimal accretion code to investigate the growth of icy planets in the outer regions of a planetesimal disk. In a quiescent minimum-mass solar nebula, icy planets grow to
MIGRATION OF PLANETS EMBEDDED IN A CIRCUMSTELLAR DISK
Planetary migration poses a serious challenge to theories of planet formation. In gaseous and planetesimal disks, migration can remove planets as quickly as they form. To explore migration in a
BROWNIAN MOTION IN PLANETARY MIGRATION
A residual planetesimal disk of mass 10-100 M⊕ remained in the outer solar system following the birth of the giant planets, as implied by the existence of the Oort cloud, coagulation requirements for
The Transit Light Curve of an Exozodiacal Dust Cloud
Planets embedded within debris disks gravitationally perturb nearby dust and can create clumpy, azimuthally asymmetric circumstellar ring structures that rotate in lock with the planet. The Earth
Gap Clearing by Planets in a Collisional Debris Disk
We apply our 3D debris disk model, SMACK, to simulate a planet on a circular orbit near a ring of planetesimals that are experiencing destructive collisions. Previous simulations of a planet opening

Orbital Evolution of Planets Embedded in a Planetesimal Disk
The existence of the Oort comet cloud, the Kuiper belt, and plausible inefficiencies in planetary core formation all suggest that there was once a residual planetesimal disk of mass ~10–100 M⊕ in the
Collisional processes in extrasolar planetesimal discs – dust clumps in Fomalhaut's debris disc
This paper presents a model for the outcome of collisions between planetesimals in a debris disc, and assesses the impact of collisional processes on the structure and size distribution of the disc.
