The Dynamics of Compact, Multi-planet Systems

Event Start:

Event Information:

The Kepler telescope detected thousands of exoplanets in hundreds of multi-planet systems and revolutionised planetary sciences. Many of these systems are quite compact and are typically a few billions of years old. Consequently, we are seeing only a snapshot of system architectures after hundreds of billions or even trillions of orbits. A substantial portion of their evolution has been governed by dynamical interactions, however. This can allow us to probe their histories and constrain the role of the natal environment.
