We present the results of a suite of giant planet migration simulations using Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH). These simulations take a disk model with an embedded planet and evolve the system for several dynamical times, measuring the rates of migration and accretion. The simulations are global, threedimensional, include the self-gravify of the disk… (More)
