A detailed understanding of the physics of star and planet formation requires study of individual objects as well as statistical assessment of global properties and evolutionary trends. Observational investigations of circumstellar material surrounding young stars have matured to the point that both spectral energy distributions sampled over more than four decades in wavelength and spatially resolved images or interferometric visibilities at limited optical/infrared and sub-/millimeter… 
Initial Conditions of Planet Formation: Lifetimes of Primordial Disks
The statistical properties of circumstellar disks around young stars are important for constraining theoretical models for the formation and early evolution of planetary systems. In this brief
Disks around young stellar objects
By 1939, when Chandrasekhar’s classic monograph on the theory of Stellar Structure was published, although the need for recent star formation was fully acknowledged, no one had yet recognized an
Formation and Evolution of Terrestrial Planets in Protoplanetary and Debris Disks
This review discusses the properties of protoplanetary disks in the context of terrestrial planet formation, emphasising the general pattern of planet formation and evidence for similar patterns of
Die Rolle der Staubkoagulation bei der Planetenentstehung
Die Aufenthaltsdauer von Staub in protoplanetaren Scheiben ist zeitlich begrenzt, da die Staubmaterie durch Reibung mit dem Gas an Drehimpuls verliert und auf das Zentralgestirn driftet. In einer
