Origin & Evolution of Habitable Planets: Astronomical Prospective D.N.C. Lin University of California, Santa Cruz, KIAA, Peking University, with Pathways towards Habitable Planets Barcelona, Spain September 14th, 2009 S. Ida, J.L. Zhou, K. Kretke, C. Baruteau, S.L. Li, K.

Key Questions Are we alone? (In search of island planets) Are we special? (Similarities & diversities) How did we get here? (Origins & Evolution) Where is ET ? (Environment & biosignatures) Theorey of biology (From anthropic principle towards a set of deterministic laws). 2/17
Milestones Conceptual nebula hypothesis First observational discoveries Characterization & calibration Constraints of theoretical models Strategies for future searches 3/17
Why study gas giants first? Easy to detect: Stimulus of different search methods Highlight theoretical challenges: rapid formation, limited retention, & diverse evolution Missing link to rocky planets: cores and composition Environmental perturbers: shakers and movers of dynamical architectures Signposts of habitats? rocky-planet oasis or desert 4/17
Ubiquity of gas giants Protostellar disks transits Radial velocity Solar system exploration meteoritic microlensing Planetary systems 5/17 AO

Calibration of theoretical models Snow line accumulation of dust and embryos 9/17
Hot Jupiters & Super Earths 10/17 Tidal & magnetic interaction:Inflation and mass losses Stellar spin Scattering & Kozai effect
Secular & resonant interaction in multiple systems Formation time/space separation. Preservation of resonances 11/17 Formation after 60 Myr Formation on 30-60 Myr Relativistic detuning in Arae
If more than 3 giant planets form on circular orbits Orbit crossing starts on t cross One is ejected. The others remain in stable eccentric orbits. inner one: radial velocity outer one: direct imaging t cross Origin of eccentric planets: jumping jupiter Weidenschilling & Marzari (1996), Lin & Ida(1997),Zhou et al (2007) Solar system: 2 giants stable t cross [yr] Δ a [r H ] 12/17
