Early evolution of the planet when the eccentricity is damped from higher values due to the interaction with a disk of planetesimals. For each simulation, the color of the position of the planet becomes darker with time. In the circulation zone only the amplitude of the mutual inclination is damped, but for orbits starting in the libration area, the planet evolves into the Lidov-Kozai equilibria.
