The Origin of Planetary System Architectures. I. Multiple Planet Traps in Gaseous Discs

Attempting to figure out how the various planetary systems got the way they are. Multiple planet traps caused by various phenomena in the disc may be responsible. (Given that composition plays a role in the ice-line trap, I have to wonder if there is any correlation between system architecture and elemental abundances, e.g. if the disc has a higher C/O ratio and forms carbon-rich worlds rather than water-rich ones)
