- Table 1:
Orbital parameters of the two planets of the planetary system GJ 876 at
epoch JD 2 449 679.6316 assuming co-planarity and
given by Laughlin et al. (2004).
The adopted stellar mass is
P denotes the orbital period, M the
mass of the planet, a the semi-major axis, e the eccentricity,
the angle of periastron at epoch, and q the mass ratio
- Table 2:
Parameters of the models used to study the evolution of
a planetary system under the action of an outer disk.
Given are a model name, the used thermodynamics (TD),
isothermal (iso) or radiative (rad),
the type of outer boundary condition (obc)
(open or closed), the mass-ratio of the inner planet (q1),
the mass ratio or evolution of the outer planet (q2), the figure
in which the model is displayed.
The displayed radiative models include heating and cooling only
as the inclusion of the diffusion does not change results significantly.
