CONSEQUENCES OF THE EJECTION AND DISRUPTION OF GIANT PLANETS

The discovery of Jupiter-mass planets in close orbits about their parent stars has challenged models of planet formation. Recent observations have shown that a number of these planets have highly

Abstract Transits give us the mass, radius, and orbital properties of the planet, all of which inform dynamical theories. Two properties of the hot Jupiters suggest they had a dramatic origin via

ON THE SURVIVABILITY AND METAMORPHISM OF TIDALLY DISRUPTED GIANT PLANETS: THE ROLE OF DENSE CORES

A large population of planetary candidates in short-period orbits have been found recently through transit searches, mostly with the Kepler mission. Radial velocity surveys have also revealed several

Dynamical Outcomes of Planet-Planet Scattering

Observations in the past decade have revealed extrasolar planets with a wide range of orbital semimajor axes and eccentricities. Based on the present understanding of planet formation via core

On the Origins of Eccentric Close-In Planets

Strong tidal interaction with the central star can circularize the orbits of close-in planets. With the standard tidal quality factor Q of our solar system, estimated circularization times for

INFLATING AND DEFLATING HOT JUPITERS: COUPLED TIDAL AND THERMAL EVOLUTION OF KNOWN TRANSITING PLANETS

We examine the radius evolution of close in giant planets with a planet evolution model that couples the orbital–tidal and thermal evolution. For 45 transiting systems, we compute a large grid of

Formation of hot Jupiters through secular chaos and dynamical tides

The population of giant planets on short-period orbits can potentially be explained by some flavours of high-eccentricity migration. In this paper, we investigate one such mechanism involving

OBSERVATIONAL EVIDENCE FOR TIDAL DESTRUCTION OF EXOPLANETS

The distribution of the orbits of close-in exoplanets shows evidence for ongoing removal and destruction by tides. Tides raised on a planet's host star cause the planet's orbit to decay, even after

STEADY-STATE PLANET MIGRATION BY THE KOZAI–LIDOV MECHANISM IN STELLAR BINARIES

We study the steady-state orbital distributions of giant planets migrating through the combination of the Kozai–Lidov (KL) mechanism due to a stellar companion and friction due to tides raised on the

Shrinking Binary and Planetary Orbits by Kozai Cycles with Tidal Friction

At least two arguments suggest that the orbits of a large fraction of binary stars and extrasolar planets shrank by 1-2 orders of magnitude after formation: (1) the physical radius of a star shrinks

Tidal Dissipation in Rotating Giant Planets

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.

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

On the tidal interaction of massive extrasolar planets on highly eccentric orbits

In this paper we develop a theory of disturbances induced by the stellar tidal field in a fully convective slowly rotating planet orbiting on a highly eccentric orbit around a central star. In this

Gravitational scattering as a possible origin for giant planets at small stellar distances

TLDR
An alternative model for planetary migration that can account for two large orbital eccentricities of giant planets that are difficult to reconcile with a tidal-linkage model is described.

Extremely Close-In Giant Planets from Tidal Capture

Planets that form around stars born in dense stellar environments are subject to dynamical perturbations from other stars in the system. These perturbations will strip outer planets, forming a

ORBITAL EVOLUTION AND MIGRATION OF GIANT PLANETS: MODELING EXTRASOLAR PLANETS

Giant planets in circumstellar disks can migrate inward from their initial (formation) positions. Radial migration is caused by inward torques between the planet and the disk, by outward torques

On the Tidal Inflation of Short-Period Extrasolar Planets

We examine the consequences of tidal interaction between eccentric short-period extrasolar planets and their host stars and of secular perturbations between planets in a given system. If the planet

The Internal Structural Adjustment Due to Tidal Heating of Short-Period Inflated Giant Planets

Several short-period Jupiter-mass planets have been discovered around nearby solar-type stars. During the circularization of their orbits, the dissipation of tidal disturbance by their host stars

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
