Left panel: the ratio between eccentricities (red) and inclinations (blue) as a function of the planet’s mass considering both the oligarchic and the quasi-runaway growth. Clearly, the planetesimals’ excitation is several times higher in the oligarchic growth than in the quasi-runaway growth. The right panel shows the impact of the planetesimals’ excitation in the accretion rate of solids: for the quasi-runaway growth (yellow) the accretion rate is much higher than in the oligarchic growth (green).
