Fig. 7


Orbital inclination (zero degrees correspond to the orbital plane prior to scattering phase) vs. eccentricity for CoRoT-9b analogues at the end of our simulations. As in Fig. 5, blue circles represent planets that survived an instability whereas green circles represent planets that either remained on stable orbits or collided with the extra planet (recall that the initial inclination was randomly chosen between zero and ). The size of the circle correlates with the mass of the extra planet. The shaded region represents the 1σ allowed eccentricities for CoRoT-9b.
