The Masses, Densities, and Orbital Dynamics of Exoplanets
Université de Montréal
Multi-planet systems represent the end-states of planet formation. Their orbital dynamics and planet compositions are a fossil record of how they arrived at their present configurations. I will give detailed updates about the orbital dynamics and planet compositions in several famous multi-planet systems discovered by the Kepler Mission and discuss how the latest findings influence our understanding of planet formation.
