Jovian planet formation has been shown to be strongly correlated with host-star metallicity, which is thought to be a proxy for disk solids. Observationally, previous works have indicated that Jovian planets preferentially form around stars with solar and supersolar metallicities. Given these findings, it is challenging to form planets within metal-poor environments, particularly for hot Jupiters that are thought to form via metallicity-dependent core accretion. Although previous studies have… Expand
