  • One method to detect extrasolar planetary systems is to deduce the perturbations of planets on the observed circumstellar dust disks. Our solar system, with its known configuration of planets, provides an excellent example to study how the distribution of dust in the Edgeworth-Kuiper belt (EKB) dust disk is affected by the existence of multiple and different planets. Numerical simulations of the orbital evolution of dust particles from EKB objects show that Neptune, by trapping dust particles… CONTINUE READING
