The Configuration Formation of Planetary Systems Observed by Kepler

  • Su Wang (a1) and Jianghui Ji (a1)

Abstract

The Kepler mission has found many planetary systems, among them more than 80 systems host three planet candidates which reveal a configuration of near 4:2:1 mean motion resonance. In this paper, we focus on the configuration formation of resonant systems. As shown from our model and N-body simulations, we find that 3:2 mean motion resonance always forms at the early stage of star evolution and planets undergo high rate of migration, while 2:1 mean motion resonance happens at the late stage of the star formation, more often.
