Circumbinary Planet Formation

Post by Sirius_Alpha on 17th June 2012, 8:20 pm

It's apparently really hard to form planetesimals where the Kepler circumbinary planets are. The planets we see likely migrated.
How not to build Tatooine: the difficulty of in situ formation of circumbinary planets Kepler 16b, Kepler 34b and Kepler 35b

Just that is why around circumbinary stars planetary systems are poor in planets and I do not expect much multis around them

Well these systems, in particular Kepler-34 and Kepler-35 have the gas giant located closer to the stars than the expected formation region for such planets (the ice-line would be further out), so some migration is pretty much expected. This work adds to the confirmation of planet migration.

I see no particular reason to expect the outer systems around these close binaries to be any poorer in multi-planet systems than single stars, unless of course these are binaries formed by Kozai migration + tidal friction in higher-order multiple systems.

Planet Formation in Circumbinary Configurations: Turbulence Inhibits Planetesimal Accretion
http://arxiv.org/abs/1210.7757

Apparently the accretion-hostile conditions extend into the outer disc (4—10 AU). Circumbinary planet formation appears to be impossible without making some non-standard assumptions. Similar assumptions seem to also be required for the formation of S-type planets in close binaries.

Influence of the circumbinary disk gravity on planetesimal accumulation in the Kepler–16 system

(using the title from the PDF rather than the one with the mashed-up designation)

Including the gravity of the gas disc makes things worse.

Formation of circumbinary planets in a dead zone

Dead zones to the rescue?
