Since the first extrasolar planet was discovered about 10 years ago, a major point of dynamical investigations was the determination of stable regions in extrasolar planetary systems where additional planets may exist. Using numerical methods, we investigate the dynamical stability in known multiple planetary systems (HD74156, HD38529, HD168443, HD169830) with special interest on the region between the two known planets and on the mean motion resonances inside this region. As a dynamical model… CONTINUE READING
