## The Formation and Evolution of Planets in Protoplanetary Disks

(P4/5.0.19)

### Time & Dates

Friday 12:15 - 14:00 in the USM lecture hall. weekly between 20.10.2017 and 09.02.2018

There will be no lectures or exercises on:

• 01.12.2017
• 29.12.2017 (christmas break)
• 05.01.2018 (christmas break)

### Literature

• Repetition Exam: The repetition exam will take place on February 21 from 9:30 - 11:30 am in the lecture hall of the USM.
• Exam: The exam will take place on Friday, Feb. 9 from 12:15 - 14:15 in the USM Lecture Hall. Only pens & calculators are allowed. All formulas and quantities will be given on the exam sheets and will look like this.
• 09.01.2018 - Tutorial 9: The tutorial for exercise sheet #9 (originally planned for January 12) is shifted to January 19. Sheet #10 will be posted on January 19 and will be due on January 26.
• 04.12.2017 - Tutorial 6: There was a typo in question 1. The sound crossing time scale should be $$t_\mathrm{sound} = \frac{2\,R}{c_\mathrm{s}}$$ instead of $$t_\mathrm{sound} = \frac{2\,r}{c_\mathrm{s}}$$. The PDF was updated.
• On December 1st there will be no lecture and no exercises. The exercise sheet will be due the following week.
• November 15, 2018: The substitutions in long and short wavelength limit should be $$x = \frac{h\,c}{\lambda\,k\,T}$$ (the $$\lambda$$ was missing). The lecture notes for lecture 4 have been corrected and updated.
• November 13, 2018: There were minus signs missing in the derivation of the disk vertical structure. The final result was correct. The lecture notes for lecture 4 have been corrected and updated.

### Topics

Topics covered in the lecture will include:

• Overview: Disks & Exoplanets
• Our Solar System
• Disk Formation and Disk Structure
• Disk Evolution - Viscous Theory, Disk Winds, and Dissipation
• Dust in Protoplanetary Disks
• Planetesimal Formation
• Terrestrial Planet Formation
• Formation of Giant Planets
• Planet Migration
• Evolution of Planetary Systems
• Observations of Protoplanetary Disks

Lecture slides will be posted shortly after the lecture.
