SAC Seminar - Rebekah Dawson: Art and Architecture of Planetary Systems

Info about event


Friday 11 May 2018,  at 15:15 - 16:00

Discoveries of exoplanets so different from those in our Solar
System have called in question conventional theories for how planetary
systems form and evolve. I will present recent progress in our
understanding of the physical processes that drive the assembly of
planetary systems and result in the surprising variety of orbital
architectures we observe today. I will discuss orbital evolution in both
the large and small planet regime and physical processes that link
planetary orbits to their physical properties and properties of their
host stars. I will conclude by discussing predictions and investigations
for upcoming and planned space missions.
