Aims. We examine the uncertainties in current planetary models and quantify their impact on the planet cooling histories and massradius relationships. Methods. These uncertainties include (i) the differences between the various equations of state used to characterize the heavy material thermodynamical properties, (ii) the distribution of heavy elements within planetary interiors, (iii) their chemical composition, and (iv) their thermal contribution to the planet evolution. Our models, which… Expand
