We calculate herein the late stages of terrestrial planet accumulation around a solar-type star that has a binary companion with semimajor axis larger than the terrestrial planet region. We perform more than 100 simulations to survey binary parameter space and to account for sensitive dependence on initial conditions in these dynamical systems. As expected, sufficiently wide binaries leave the planet formation process largely unaffected. As a rough approximation, binary stars with periastron qB… Expand
