课程介绍
报告摘要: More than 3000 exoplanets (planets outside the Solar system) have been discovered in the last two decades, including some Earth-like planets that could harbor water and life. However,many exoplanetary systems are "extreme" and quite unlike our own Solar System: hot Jupiters, super-Earths, compact muli-planet systems, circumbinary planets, etc. These extreme planetarysystems are changing our view of planetary formation. They raise many puzzles and require new theoretical ideas and tools for their proper understanding. 报告人简介:Dong Lai is Professor of Astrophysics at Cornell University.
