We use a hybrid, multiannulus, n-body-coagulation code to investigate the growth of kilometer-sized planetesimals at 0.4-2 AU around a solar-type star. After a short runaway growth phase, protoplanets with masses of ~1026 g and larger form throughout the grid. When (1) the mass in these oligarchs is roughly comparable to the mass in planetesimals and (2) the surface density in oligarchs exceeds 2-3 g cm-2 at 1 AU, strong dynamical interactions among oligarchs produce a high merger rate, which… Expand
