# STABILITY LIMITS IN EXTRASOLAR PLANETARY SYSTEMS

@inproceedings{Greenberg2006STABILITYLI, title={STABILITY LIMITS IN EXTRASOLAR PLANETARY SYSTEMS}, author={Rory BarnesRichard Greenberg}, year={2006} }

Two types of stability boundaries exist for any planetary system consisting of one star and two planets. Lagrange stability requires that the planets remain bound to the star, conserves the ordering of the distance from the star, and limits the variations of orbital elements like semimajor axis and eccentricity. Hill stability only requires that the ordering of the planets remain constant; the outer planet may escape to infinity. A simple formula defines a region in orbital element space that… CONTINUE READING
