Despite the existence of co-orbital bodies in the solar system, and the prediction of the formation of co-orbital planets by planetary system formation models, no co-orbital exoplanets (also called trojans) have been detected thus far. In this paper we investigate how a pair of co-orbital exoplanets would fare during their migration in a protoplanetary disc. To this end, we computed a stability criterion of the Lagrangian equilibria L4 and L5 under generic dissipation and slow mass evolution… 
An analytical model for tidal evolution in co-orbital systems. I. Application to exoplanets
Close-in co-orbital planets (in a 1:1 mean motion resonance) can experience strong tidal interactions with the central star. Here, we develop an analytical model adapted to the study of the tidal
Dynamics of co-orbital exoplanets in a first order resonance chain with tidal dissipation
Co-orbital planets (in a 1 : 1 mean motion resonance) can be formed within a Laplace resonance chain. We develop a secular model to study the dynamics of the resonance chain p : p : p + 1 , where the
Pebbles versus planetesimals: the case of Trappist-1
We present a study into the formation of planetary systems around low mass stars similar to Trappist-1, through the accretion of either planetesimals or pebbles. The aim is to determine if the
On the Detection of Habitable Trojan Planets in the Kepler Circumbinary Systems
We present the results of a study of the prospect of detecting habitable Trojan planets in the Kepler Habitable Zone circumbinary planetary systems (Kepler-16, -47, -453, -1647, and -1661). We
Exoplanet characterisation in the longest known resonant chain: the K2-138 system seen by HARPS
The detection of low-mass transiting exoplanets in multiple systems brings new constraints to planetary formation and evolution processes and challenges the current planet formation theories.


Tidal evolution of close-in exoplanets in co-orbital configurations
In this paper, we study the behavior of a pair of co-orbital planets, both orbiting a central star on the same plane and undergoing tidal interactions. Our goal is to investigate final orbital
Dynamics of two planets in co-orbital motion
We study the stability regions and families of periodic orbits of two planets locked in a co-orbital configuration. We consider different ratios of planetary masses and orbital eccentricities; we
Co-orbital terrestrial planets in exoplanetary systems: a formation scenario
Aims. We study the formation of a hypothetical terrestrial-type body in the equilateral Lagrange points of a giant extrasolar planet. Starting from a swarm of planetesimals in stable tadpole orbits,
A Perturbative Treatment of The Co-Orbital Motion
We develop a formalism of the non-singular evaluation of the disturbing function and its derivatives with respect to the canonical variables. We apply this formalism to the case of the perturbed
Disruption of co-orbital (1:1) planetary resonances during gas-driven orbital migration
Planets close to their stars are thought to form farther out and migrate inward due to angular momentum exchange with gaseous protoplanetary disks. This process can produce systems of planets in
On the co-orbital motion of two planets in quasi-circular orbits
We develop an analytical Hamiltonian formalism adapted to the study of the motion of two planets in co-orbital resonance. The Hamiltonian, averaged over one of the planetary mean longitudes, is
On the growth and stability of Trojan planets
Aims. We investigate the stability of those low-mass Trojan planets that form in a protoplanetary disc and subsequently accrete gas to become gas giants. Methods. We calculate their evolution before,
Orbital evolution of eccentric planets in radiative discs
Context. With an average eccentricity of about 0.29, the eccentricity distribution of extrasolar planets is markedly different from the solar system. Among other scenarios considered, it has been
Although not yet detected, pairs of exoplanets in 1:1 mean motion resonance probably exist. Low eccentricity, near-planar orbits, which in the comoving frame follow horseshoe trajectories, are one of
On the orbital evolution and growth of protoplanets embedded in a gaseous disc
ABSTRA C T We present a new computation of the linear tidal interaction of a protoplanetary core with a thin gaseous disc in which it is fully embedded. For the first time a discussion of the orbital
