  • Straddling the traditional realms of the planets and the stars, objects below the edge of the main sequence have such unique properties, and are being discovered in such quantities, that one can rightly claim that a new field at the interface of planetary science and astronomy is being born. This article extends the previous review of Burrows and Liebert (1993) and describes the essential elements of the theory of brown dwarfs and giant planets. It discusses their evolution, atmospheric… CONTINUE READING
