4 Planetary migration: a very complex problem
Turbulence (MRI?): stochastic migration Kley & Crida (2008)‏ Small planets (1- 50 ME): Type I migration Isothermal, adiabatic, or fully radiative energy equation 2D-3D HS drag Masset & Papaloizou (2003)‏ Saturn-Jupiter size planets: Type II, III migration Numerical simulations: resolution close to the planet (CPD handling) and at resonances

5 Low mass (1-50 ME) planet: type I migration

6 The inner wake exerts a positive torque on the planet accelerating it and causing an outward migration The outer wake exerts a negative torque slowing down the planet and leading to inward migration The sum of the two torques, the differential Lindblad torque, is negative and causes inward migration.

7 What is the origin of the wakes?
QUESTIONS: What is the origin of the wakes? Can we compute the differential Lindblad torque? Wakes (2 arms) are given by superposition of sound waves, excited at Lindblad resonances, in a differentially rotating disk. Lindblad resonances are located in the fluid where

8 Lindblad resonances in the 'galactic' language....
Fourier decomposition of the planet potential We search in the disk the radius where the epicyclic frequency is equal to m-times the difference between the orbital frequency of the planet and the keplerian frequency at the disk location ...but


10 Adding up all the torques at the Lindblad resonances (analitically with the linear approximation or numerically) it is possible to give an expression for the total torque on the planet. Where a is the exponend of the density power law and b that of the temperature profile

11 Eample of how the torque depends on the disk parameters

12 Type I migration too fast
Type I migration too fast! Planetary embryos would fall onto the star before accreting the gas and become gas giants. For this reason Alibert et al. (2004,2005) assumed that the migration speed was a factor 30 lower than that computed. In this way they were able to reproduce with their model of planet formation+migration the observed distribution in mass and orbital elements of exoplanets. Models of Jupiter formation with migration. Timescales of a few Myr compatible with the lifetime of the disk.

13 The inner and outer disc are responsible for the Lindblad torque.
Horseshoe torque The inner and outer disc are responsible for the Lindblad torque. In the horseshoe region, gas particles make U- turns → exchange of angular momentum with the planet → Corotation torque.


15 Exchange of angular momentum at the horseshoe region which depends on the temperature and density profile and the viscosity.

16 Gas enters from above and escapes below since the lines are not symmetric.

17 Type I migration can be reversed for radiative disks (Kley & Crida (2008) due to the horseshoe torque. Up to 40 Earth masses the torque is positive. This is important for Jupiter size planets where the core is about ME Before gas infall they migrate outwards and after the gas infall (very rapid, 1 kyr) they undergo type II migration potentially skipping the critical fast inward migration phase.

18 Nelson (2005). Large scale turbulence can cause a stochastic migration of planets overcoming the Lindblad torques.

19 Type II migration: Jupiter size planets

20 Gap opening criterium: TOS > T
The gas is pushed away by the resonance perturbations which overcome the viscosity push of matter towards the planet.

21 Type III or runaway migration
Different colors are tracking different fluid elements that then evolve.


23 What about Jupiter and Saturn
What about Jupiter and Saturn? Why didn't they migrate very close to the sun? Coupled migration while trapped in resonance!

24 Masset & Snellgrove (2001): Jupiter and Saturn trapped in a 3:2 resonance migrates outwards.
Jupiter excites inner Lindblad resonances, Saturn the outer ones. A positive torque is obtained

25 The grand tack scenario (Walsh et al. 2011)
1st step: Inward migration of Jupiter & Saturn during their growth ; Jupiter gets to 1.5 AU 2nd step: 3:2 resonance capture and common gap formation 3rd step: outward migration to their present orbits Implications: It can explain radial mixing of asteroids and small size of Mars

26 Estimate the disk density when Jupiter and Saturn reverse migration
Question: can Jupiter (and Saturn) migrates all the way back from 1.5 to 5.2 AU in an evolved nebula? Estimate the disk density when Jupiter and Saturn reverse migration Derive the outward migration speed of the two planets locked in resonance

27 Reference quantities are computed from a 3D simulation with
Semiempirical formula of coupled migration scaled for different disk parameters Reference quantities are computed from a 3D simulation with More than 50% of disk models have approximately these parameters after 1 Myr (D'Angelo & Marzari 2012).

28 Very low probability of reaching their present position with outward coupled migration in the 3:2 for different values of disk parameters. … means no evolution

29 As if the situation were not bad enough with
the 3:2, now the 2:1 !! In a low density nebula, the capture in a 2:1 resonance occurs prior encountering the 3:2. The 2:1 resonance DOES NOT lead to outward migration because of the reduced gap overlapping

30 Analytical criterion (Mustill & Wyatt, 2011) For the 2:1
Assuming that the migration speed of Saturn is type I, then %SIGMA <=

31 Type I migration (reduced by a factor 10-100)‏
From planetesimals to planets: giant planets Giant impact phase much shorter due to planet migration. It prevents dynamical isolation and move the planets around filling up their feeding zone. Problems? It may be too fast and push the planet onto the star. Alibert et al. (2005) semianalytical model‏ * Upper line: mass accreted from planetesimals * Bottom line from gas * Continuous line: started at 8 AU, * Dotted: at 15 AU (all end up at 5 AU). * Dashed line: in situ model (no migration)‏ Type I migration (reduced by a factor )‏ Type II migration (when gap is opened)‏

32 The Jumping Jupiter model

33 How do planets achieve large e and small q?
1) Planet-Planet scattering: at the end of the chaotic phase a planet is ejected, one is injected on a highly eccentric orbit that will be tidally circularized to the pericenter, one is sent on an outer orbit 2)‏ 3)‏ 1) Weidenschilling & Marzari (1996)‏, Rasio and Ford (1996), version with 2 planets

34 Energy conservation

35 Mutual Hill's radius Instability onset

36 Eccentricity and inclination excitation
Eccentricity and inclination excitation. Outcome of many simulations with 3 initial planets within the instability limit by Chatterjee et al. (2008).

37 Example of 'Jumping Jupiters'. The density of the disk is MMSN/2
Example of 'Jumping Jupiters'. The density of the disk is MMSN/2. Code used is FARGO (RK5 modified to have variable stepsize). One planet (1 MJ) merges with another one (0.7 MJ) after a sequence of close encounters. Eccentricity evolution after P-P scattering: damping or excitation because of corotation resonance saturation?

38 Tidal migration of eccentric orbits
Maximum e declines with distance from the star: tidal circularization. Energy is dissipated but the angular momentum J is preserved.

39 Kozai mechanism; invoked for the first time to explain the large eccentricity of the planet in the binary system 16 Cyn B.

40 One of the planets (HD80606b) has a highly eccentric (e = 0
One of the planets (HD80606b) has a highly eccentric (e = 0.93) and tight (a = 0.46 AU) orbit. The presence of a stellar companion of the host star can cause Kozai oscillations in the planet's eccentricity. Combined with tidal dissipation, this can move the planet inward well after it has formed. Such a migration mechanism can account for the orbit of HD80606b, but only if the initial planet orbit was highly inclined relative to the binary orbit.

42 Superficial density at the planet location
D'Angelo & Lubow (2008) first attempt to include planet growth in a hydrodynamical simulation. 300 g/cm2 100 g/cm2 3 ME Superficial density at the planet location

43 Finding planets inclined respect to the star equator (WASP-14, Johnson et al, 2009) is a strong indication that happened AFTER. Why? Jumping Jupiters can lead to inclined planetary orbits but Marzari and Nelson (2009). .....the interaction with the gaseous disk drives the planet quickly back within the disk (103 yrs).

44 There are many weird planets out there, and theory must explain them all!
