The Intersection of Binary and Planet Formation

Colloquium: Astronomy Colloquia | December 5 | 4:10 p.m. | 2 LeConte Hall


Kaitlin Kratter, Arizona

Department of Astronomy


Half of solar-type stars are in binary systems, and planets are likely more numerous than solar-type stars. How do these two populations overlap? Exploring the formation and architecture of these systems requires that we combine (magneto)-hydrodynamic simulations and few-body dynamical integrations. I will discuss new results from these investigations, and describe how ALMA and TESS can contribute to our understanding of these unique systems.
