  • Abstract We suggest that planets, brown dwarfs, and even low mass stars can be formed by fragmentation of protoplanetary disks around very massive stars (M ≳ 100 M⊙). We discuss how fragmentation conditions make the formation of very massive planetary systems around very massive stars favorable. Such planetary systems are likely to be composed of brown dwarfs and low mass stars of ∼0.1–0.3 M⊙, at orbital separations of ∼ few × 100–104 AU. In particular, scaling from solar-like stars suggests… CONTINUE READING
