1 F. Marzari, Dept. Physics, Padova Univ. The role of migration and planet-planet scattering in shaping planetary systems

2 Small semimajor axes Large eccentricities Spin-orbit misalignment Standard model of planet formation based on Solar system exploration: low eccentricities & inclinations, large semimajor axes for giant planets.....

3 The standard model Plugins Plugins Protostar +Disk Planetesimal formation by dust coagulation with contribution from turbulence, instability …. Formation of Terrestrial planets and core of giant planets (subsequent gas infall) by planetesimal accumulation Gas dissipation – final planetary system P-P scattering Residual planetesimal scattering Tidal interaction with the star Planet migration P-P scattering

4 Planetary migration by interaction with the disk: a very complex problem Type I migration: Small planets (1- 50 M E ) HS drag Isothermal, adiabatic, or fully radiative energy equation Turbulence -> stochastic migration Saturn-Jupiter and more massive planets: Type II, III migration Masset & Papaloizou (2003)‏ Kley & Crida (2008)‏

5 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. TYPE I MIGRATION Wakes (2 arms) are given by superposition of sound waves, excited at Lindblad resonances, in a differentially rotating disk.


7 The inner and outer disc are responsible for the Lindblad torque. In the horseshoe region, gas particles make U- turns → exchange angular momentum with the planet → Corotation torque. Horseshoe torque Paardekooper et al. (2010, 2011)

8 Because of horshoe drag 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 10-30 M E 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.

9 Coleman & Nelson (2014) Low mass planets: the horseshoe period long compared to viscous/radiative diffusion timescale: weak corotation torque. Inward migration Intermediate masses: two timescales comparable, strong corotation torque, outward migration Large masses: saturation of corotation torque. The viscous/radiative diffusion timescales long compared to horseshoe period, phase mixing, no torque.

10 Nelson (2005). Large scale MHD-driven turbulence can cause a stochastic migration of planets overcoming the Lindblad torques. Dead zones? 10 M E 1 M E

11 Type II migration: Jupiter size planets

12 Gap opening criterium: T OS > T The gas is pushed away by the resonance perturbations which overcome viscosity. If Crida et al. (2006)

13 Alibert et al. (2005): migration is included during growth Movshovitz et al. (2010): detailed grain physics, no migration. Orbital migration is important not only for changing the architecture of planetary systems but it also influences the growth of a planet in particular during the gas infall from the disk: shorter formation timescales are obtained. Even if.....

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

15 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 when T J > T S

16 . The grand tack scenario The grand tack scenario. Recent model by Walsh et al. Nature 2011, assumes that Jupiter migrated to 1.5 AU before reversing the drift direction. This would explains the low mass of Mars and the compositional mixing in the main asteroid belt.

17 A model of coupled giant planet migration must account for the disk evolution driven by viscous torques and wind dispersal (EUV photoevaporation,.) A model of coupled giant planet migration must account for the disk evolution driven by viscous torques and wind dispersal (EUV photoevaporation, Dullemond et al. 2007, Clarke 2011...) Continuity equation + thermal balance

18 The disk evolves with time due to viscosity (→ mass accretion on the star) and photoevaporation. The local gas density decreases with time and when the planets (Jupiter and Saturn for example) begin to migrate outwards they may not go far out. In the GT model Jupiter and Saturn may not have enough time to return to their present position. Ad example, 1D models predict a superficial density around 100 g/cm 2 or lower at 1 AU by the time Jupiter migrates to 1.5 AU.

19 Only in a minority of disk models (less than 2%) the planets are able to move back to 5 AU or beyond, possible site of their formation IN ADDITION: In evolved disks with low density, the 2:1 occurs first and the planets move inwards. D'Angelo & Marzari (2012)

20 Mass growth of the two planets may lead to violation of the conditions for outward migration Gas is accreted within 0.1 R H (under the hypothesis of disk-limited accretion rate). Time (10 4 yr)  ~ 1600 gr/cm 2  ~ 5000 gr/cm 2  ~ 800 gr/cm 2  ~ 50 gr/cm 2 (at 1 AU)

21 . Conditions for extended migration of planets in resonance The interior planet's mass must exceed that of the exterior planet during all migration. If the mass growth changes the ratio, the outward migration is interrupted and possibly reversed. The gas density has not to be too low at the time of trapping otherwise the planets are captured in the 2:1 resonance. This sets a lower limit on the gas density at the capture. The outward migration must be fast before the dispersal of the disk. The planets must not have crossing orbits

22 Planet growth:Gas from the disk falls on the CPD while crossing the gap The planet accrete gas from the CPD For the second step the presence of viscosity in the CPD is relevant for the mass accretion rate dM p /dt Potential sources of viscosity: MRI (inner regions) Gravitational instability (outer regions) Spiral waves induced by the sun tidal force (outer regions).

23 Different scenarios for the CPD: Inviscid CPD: according to Szulagyi et al. (2014) the disk is MRI inactive. Inferred accretion rate from other mechanisms of the order of 2.5 x 10 -6 M J /yr for the planet. It does not explain why there are planets with 2 and more Jupiter masses among extrasolar planets. Viscous CPD:Gressel et al. (2013) performed resistive MHD simulations with adiabatic equation of state. They find that the CPD should be MRI active at least in the inner region with ionization due to XRs and CRs. Accretion rate of the order of 2.5 x 10 -5 M J /yr Keith & Wardle (2014): self-consistent model of CPD where MRI mostly caused by thermal ionization can drive accretion out to ∼ 200 R J, beyond which gravitoturbulence dominates. Large values of  are observerd within 30 R J. Turner et al. (2014) suggests that CPD have magnetically-active surface layers leading to accretion onto the planet and decoupled interior dead zones.

24 Images of the planet+CPD surroundings for increasing resolution. The vector indicates the direction of the gas flux. The gas falls onto the planet from high latitudes while the gas in the CPD is not moving radially due to the low viscosity.

25 1 M J is not a threshold value for the mass of giant planets The growth process must allow for the formation of more massive planets

26 The Jumping Jupiter model

27 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)‏ Weidenschilling & Marzari (1996)‏, Rasio and Ford (1996), Ida & Lin (1997)....... 1)

28 Stability limit for 2 planets Stability limit for 3 planets Marzari (2014)

29 Pure N-body P-P scattering Tidal interaction with the central star (Nagasawa et al 2008) Interaction with the gas of the circumstellar disk (Marzari et al. 2010) Interaction with a leftover planetesimal disk (Raymond et al. 2009)

30 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. Inclined hot Jupiters due to instability+tide +Kozai with outer planet(s) from Nagasawa et al. (2008).

31 Example of 'Jumping Jupiters' in presence of the protostellar disk. The density of the disk is MMSN/2. Code used is FARGO (RK5 modified to have variable stepsize). One planet (1 M J ) merges with another one (0.7 M J ) after a sequence of close encounters. Eccentricity evolution after P-P scattering: damping or excitation because of corotation resonance saturation? Marzari et al. (2010), Lega et al. (2013)

32 Planetesimal disks and P-P scattering Planetesimal disks and P-P scattering : Lower eccentricities and inclinations for outer low-mass planets after P-P scattering (Raymond 2009, 2010) Possible formation of mini Oort clouds by scattered planetesimals (Raymond & Armitage 2013) Lower fraction of debris disks co-existing with the final planet system (Marzari 2014) Green dots are systems which might retain a debris disk.

33 Synthetic population models: combine all processes to explain the present population of exoplanets. Benz et al. 2014 Ida et al. 2013 Comparison with observed population (with and without observative bias) THE FINAL MODEL

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

35 Energy conservation

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

37 CPD: CircumPlanetary Disk Size: Defined either by truncation or by the rotation profile. (sw=specific angular momentum) Mass: Minimum Mass, gas starved, numerical models ….. Gas trajectories in the proximity of the planet orbit. Close to the planet there is a vertical inflow on the CPD
