Martin et al. showed that a substantially misaligned accretion disk around one component of a binary system can undergo global damped Kozai–Lidov (KL) oscillations. During these oscillations, the inclination and eccentricity of the disk are periodically exchanged. However, the robustness of this mechanism and its dependence on the system parameters were unexplored. In this paper, we use three-dimensional hydrodynamical simulations to analyze how various binary and disk parameters affect the KL… 

THE KOZAI–LIDOV MECHANISM IN HYDRODYNAMICAL DISKS. III. EFFECTS OF DISK MASS AND SELF-GRAVITY

Previously we showed that a substantially misaligned viscous accretion disk with pressure that orbits around one component of a binary system can undergo global damped Kozai–Lidov (KL) oscillations.

Fragmentation of Kozai–Lidov Disks

We analyze the gravitational instability (GI) of a locally isothermal inclined disk around one component of a binary system. Such a disk can undergo global Kozai–Lidov (KL) cycles if the initial disk

Sustained Kozai–Lidov Oscillations in Misaligned Circumstellar Gas Disks

A disk around one component of a binary star system with sufficiently high inclination can undergo Kozai–Lidov (KL) oscillations during which the disk inclination and disk eccentricity are exchanged.

A Fast-growing Tilt Instability of Detached Circumplanetary Disks

Accretion disks in binary systems can exhibit a tilt instability, arising from the interaction between components of the tidal potential and dissipation. Using a linear analysis, we show that the

Misaligned accretion disc formation via Kozai–Lidov oscillations

We investigate the formation and evolution of misaligned accretion discs around the secondary component of a binary through mass transfer driven by Kozai-Lidov oscillations of the circumprimary

CIRCUMSTELLAR DEBRIS DISKS: DIAGNOSING THE UNSEEN PERTURBER

The first indication of the presence of a circumstellar debris disk is usually the detection of excess infrared emission from the population of small dust grains orbiting the star. This dust is

Kozai-Lidov disc instability

Recent results by Martin et al. (2014) showed in 3D SPH simulations that tilted discs in binary systems can be unstable to the development of global, damped Kozai-Lidov (KL) oscillations in which the

Planetary migration in precessing discs for S-type wide binaries

The discovery of numerous circumprimary planets in the last few years has brought to the fore the question of planet formation in binary systems. The significant dynamical influence, during the

Effects of disc warping on the inclination evolution of star-disc-binary systems

Several recent studies have suggested that circumstellar disks in young stellar binaries may be driven into misalignement with their host stars due to secular gravitational interactions between the

The frequency of Kozai–Lidov disc oscillation driven giant outbursts in Be/X-ray binaries

Giant outbursts of Be/X-ray binaries may occur when a Be-star disc undergoes strong eccentricity growth due to the Kozai–Lidov (KL) mechanism. The KL effect acts on a disc that is highly inclined

Dynamics of binary-disk interaction. 1: Resonances and disk gap sizes

We investigate the gravitational interaction of a generally eccentric binary star system with circumbinary and circumstellar gaseous disks. The disks are assumed to be coplanar with the binary,

THE KOZAI–LIDOV MECHANISM IN HYDRODYNAMICAL DISKS

We use three-dimensional hydrodynamical simulations to show that a highly misaligned accretion disk around one component of a binary system can exhibit global Kozai–Lidov cycles, where the

We consider the dynamics of a protostellar disc in a binary system where the disc is misaligned with the orbital plane of the binary, with the aim of determining the observational consequences for

On the Tilting of Protostellar Disks by Resonant Tidal Effects

We consider the dynamics of a protostellar disk surrounding a star in a circular-orbit binary system. Our aim is to determine whether, if the disk is initially tilted with respect to the plane of the

We study the nonlinear evolution of global m = 1 modes with low pattern speeds in a differentially rotating non magnetic disk, by means of two and three dimensional numerical simulations. The modes

Hydrodynamic instability in eccentric astrophysical discs

Eccentric Keplerian discs are believed to be unstable to three-dimensional hydrodynamical instabilities driven by the time-dependence of fluid properties around an orbit. These instabilities could

Standard, planar accretion discs operate through a dissipative mechanism, usually thought to be turbulent, and often modelled as a viscosity. This acts to take energy from the radial shear, enabling

A model of accretion disks in close binaries.

The simple periodic orbits of a test particle in the restricted three-body problem are a very good approximation to the streamlines in the accretion disk with a very small pressure and viscosity. The

In a planetary system, a secular particle resonance occurs at a location where the precession rate of a test particle (e.g., an asteroid) matches the frequency of one of the precessional modes of the
