Many extrasolar planets orbit sufficiently close to their host stars that significant tidal interactions can be expected, resulting in an evolution of the spin and orbital properties of the planets. The accompanying dissipation of energy can also be an important source of heat, leading to the inflation of short-period planets and even mass loss through Roche lobe overflow. Tides may therefore play an important role in determining the observed distributions of mass, orbital period, and… 
Orbital decay of short-period gas giants under evolving tides
The discovery of many giant planets in close-in orbits and the effect of planetary and stellar tides in their subsequent orbital decay have been extensively studied in the context of planetary

Effect of the rotation and tidal dissipation history of stars on the evolution of close-in planets
Since 20 years, a large population of close-in planets orbiting various classes of low-mass stars (from M-type to A-type stars) has been discovered. In such systems, the dissipation of the kinetic
Tidal evolution of extra-solar planets.
In both our solar system and extra-solar planetary systems, tides may have a variety of effects, driving complex orbital evolution and geophysical processes. For extra-solar planets with orbits that
Atmospheric tides in Earth-like planets
Atmospheric tides can strongly affect the rotational dynamics of planets. In the family of Earth-like planets, such as Venus, this physical mechanism coupled with solid tides makes the angular
Unravelling tidal dissipation in gaseous giant planets
Context. Tidal dissipation in planetary interiors is one of the key physical mechanisms that drive the evolution of star-planet and planet-moon systems. New constraints on this dissipation are now
Tides in Planetary Systems
The Solar system is the seat of many interactions between the Sun, the planets and their natural satellites. Moreover, since 1995, a large number of extrasolar planetary systems has been discovered
Tidal dissipation may be important for the internal evolution as well as the orbits of short-period massive planets—hot Jupiters. We revisit a mechanism proposed by Ogilvie and Lin for tidal forcing
Viscoelastic tidal dissipation in giant planets and formation of hot Jupiters through high-eccentricity migration
We study the possibility of tidal dissipation in the solid cores of giant planets and its implication for the formation of hot Jupiters through high-eccentricity migration. We present a general
Solid tidal friction in multi-layer planets: Application to Earth, Venus, a Super Earth and the TRAPPIST-1 planets
With the discovery of TRAPPIST-1 and its seven planets residing within 0.06 au, it is becoming increasingly necessary to carry out correct treatments of tidal interactions. The eccentricity,


The Effect of Tidal Inflation Instability on the Mass and Dynamical Evolution of Extrasolar Planets with Ultrashort Periods
We investigate the possibility of substantial inflation of short-period Jupiter-mass planets, as a result of their internal tidal dissipation associated with the synchronization and circularization
Tidal decay of close planetary orbits
The 4.2-day orbit of the newly discovered planet around 51~Pegasi is formally unstable to tidal dissipation. However, the orbital decay time in this system is longer than the main-sequence lifetime
Orbital evolution by dynamical tides in solar type stars. Application to binary stars and planetary orbits
We study the tidal evolution of eccentric binary systems consisting of a solar type main sequence star accompanied by either another solar type star, or by a planet with a mass similar to Jupiter's
Resonant Tides in Close Orbiting Planets
The outer layers of a gas giant planet in a close orbit are isothermal because of heating by the star, and therefore these layers are convectively stable. A resonant tidal torque is exerted at the
The theory of excitation of tidal oscillations in a fluid planetary body is formulated, and separable equa­ tions are derived that extend the results of the classical theory of tides to the
Dynamical Instabilities and the Formation of Extrasolar Planetary Systems
The existence of a dominant massive planet, Jupiter, in our solar system, although perhaps essential for long-term dynamical stability and the development of life, may not be typical of planetary
Calculating the Tidal, Spin, and Dynamical Evolution of Extrasolar Planetary Systems
Based on formulations by Heggie and by Eggleton, we present an efficient method for calculating self-consistently the tidal, spin, and dynamical evolution of a many-body system, here with particular
Gravitational tides in the outer planets. I - Implications of classical tidal theory. II - Interior calculations and estimation of the tidal dissipation factor
Classical tidal theory is applied to the gravitational excitation of the atmospheres of the gaseous planets. The only departure made from classical theory is the retention of the effects of
Easy Come, Easy Go: Orbital Migration and the Frequency of Giant Planet Formation
We present a statistical study of the post-formation migration of giant planets in a range of initial disk conditions. For given initial conditions we model the evolution of giant planet orbits under
Possible Stellar Metallicity Enhancements from the Accretion of Planets
A number of recently discovered extrasolar planet candidates have surprisingly small orbits, which may indicate that considerable orbital migration takes place in protoplanetary systems. A natural
