Scaling Laws in Disks and Exoplanets: Testing Planet Formation Theories

Ilaria Pascucci (University of Arizona)

Thursday 15/02/2018 @ 11:30, Sala IV piano Battiferro

Planets are ubiquitous in our Galaxy, in systems far more diverse than predicted by theoretical models that reproduce the properties of our own Solar System. I will discuss how scaling laws between the properties of planet-forming disks and exoplanets and the mass of the central star are key to identifying the physical processes that shape planetary systems. I will also examine the spread in disk properties relevant to planet formation and make a link to the diversity of planetary systems.
