6/4 Beibei Liu, Pebble-driven planet formation around very low-mass stars and brown dwarfs
We conduct a pebble-driven planet population synthesis study to investigate the formation of planets around very low-mass stars and brown dwarfs, in the (sub)stellar mass range between 0.01 M⊙ and 0.1 M⊙. Based on the extrapolation of numerical simulations of planetesimal formation by the streaming instability, we obtain the characteristic mass of the planetesimals and the initial masses of the protoplanets (largest bodies from the planetesimal size distributions), in either the early self-gravitating phase or the later non-self-gravitating phase of the protoplanetary disk evolution. We find that the initial protoplanets form with masses that increase with host mass, orbital distance and decrease with disk age. Around late M-dwarfs of 0.1 M⊙, these protoplanets can grow up to Earth-mass planets by pebble accretion. However, around brown dwarfs of 0.01 M⊙, planets do not grow larger than Mars mass when the initial protoplanets are born early in self-gravitating disks, and their growth stalls at around 0.01 Earth-mass when they are born late in non-self-gravitating disks. Around these low mass stars and brown dwarfs, we find no channel for gas giant planet formation because the solid cores remain too small. When the initial protoplanets form only at the water-ice line, the final planets typically have ≳15% water mass fraction. Alternatively, when the initial protoplanets form log-uniformly distributed over the entire protoplanetary disk, the final planets are either very water-rich (water mass fraction ≳15%) or entirely rocky (water mass fraction ≲5%).
10/16 Makiko Ban, Free-floating planet research and perspective
The free-floating planet (FFP) is a unique type of exoplanet. There have been very scarce discoveries about it because of the difficulty of observation. The up-comming space-based telescope missions (Euclid and Roman) are expected to boost the FFP research. Here, I'd like to introduce FFPs, the challenges about the research we are facing, and future perspectives that will be offered by those up-comming missions through my latest paper.
10/30 Yuki Tanaka, Gap formation by a super-Jupiter-mass planet and its effects on the planetary mass accretion rate
A giant planet embedded in a protoplanetary disk creates a gap structure along with its orbit by disk-planet interaction. Physical properties of the gap depend on several conditions such as mass of the planet and disk structures, and they affect both mass accretion rate onto the planet via the gap and migration rate of the planet. Therefore, the properties of the gap are important to investigate formation and evolution of planetary systems. Recently, numerical simulations of the disk-planet interaction have been done intensively, and the disk properties such as width and depth of the gap, and mass accretion rate have been studied. However, previous studies mainly focused on planets less massive than Jupiter. In addition, there are a discrepancy between several previous works on the mass accretion rate onto the planet heavier than Jupiter. Since a lot of super-Jupiter-mass planets have been found, formation and evolution of them in the protoplanetary disk should be investigated in more detail. We performed a set of hydrodynamic simulation of disk-planet interaction and investigated the properties of the gap and their parameter dependence. We varied the planetary mass from 1 to 10 Jupiter masses. We found that the gap becomes deeper as planet's mass increases up to around 3 Jupiter masses, but in more massive cases the outer edge of the gap shows significant eccentricity, which is consistent with several previous works. In this eccentric regime, the gap depth becomes shallower than an empirical relation between the depth and the planetary mass due to non-steady behavior of the gap outer edge. We also estimated the mass accretion rate onto the planet by using our result and found that the accretion rate can increase when the planet's mass is heavier because of the eccentricity of the gap.
11/20 Shota Notsu, The composition of hot Jupiter atmospheres assembled within chemically evolved protoplanetary discs
The radial-dependent positions of snowlines of abundant oxygen- and carbon-bearing molecules in protoplanetary discs will result in systematic radial variations in the C/O ratios in the gas and ice. This variation is proposed as a tracer of the formation location of gas-giant planets. However, disc chemistry can affect the C/O ratios in the gas and ice, thus potentially erasing the chemical fingerprint of snowlines in gas-giant atmospheres. We calculate the molecular composition of hot Jupiter atmospheres using elemental abundances extracted from a chemical kinetics model of a disc midplane where we have varied the initial abundances and ionization rates. The models predict a wider diversity of possible atmospheres than those predicted using elemental ratios from snowlines only. As found in previous work, as the C/O ratio exceeds the solar value, the mixing ratio of CH4 increases in the lower atmosphere, and those of C2H2 and HCN increase mainly in the upper atmosphere. The mixing ratio of H2O correspondingly decreases. We find that hot Jupiters with C/O>1 can only form between the CO2 and CH4 snowlines. Moreover, they can only form in a disc which has fully inherited interstellar abundances, and where negligible chemistry has occurred. Hence, carbon-rich planets are likely rare, unless efficient transport of hydrocarbon-rich ices via pebble drift to within the CH4 snowline is a common phenomenon. We predict combinations of C/O ratios and elemental abundances that can constrain gas-giant planet formation locations relative to snowline positions, and that can provide insight into the disc chemical history. This seminar talk is mainly based on our paper which was recently published, Notsu et al. (2020, MNRAS, 499, 2229). https://doi.org/10.1093/mnras/staa2944
11/27 Kazuaki A. Homma, Vertical growth of dust particles with UV-irradiation and organic-synthesis in protoplanetary disks
Refractory organic matter found in the solar-system would play important roles in life and planet formation. It is important to reveal how the organic-matter was formed. One possible scenario is that they form by UV irradiation and subsequent heating of volatile ices on the dust particles in protoplanetary disks (Ciesla & Sandford (2012)). Ciesla & Sandford (2012) simulated the motion of dust particles in the protoplanetary disk and calculated the total UV-photon dosage on dust particles. They also estimated how much amount of the organic-matter would be formed from the total UV-photon dosage. They found that µm-sized dust particles can absorb UV-irradiation efficiently and would contain 10 wt% of the organic matter. However, their model assumes the UV-irradiation strength without calculating the dust distribution. It is unclear whether large dust aggregates can absorb UV-radiation or not. We study how much organic-matter can be formed on dust particles in protoplanetary disks via UV-irradiation on dust aggregates if we consider the dust size distribution. We construct a model to simulate growth, vertical transport, and UV absorption of icy aggregates in a protoplanetary disk. We find that the large dust aggregates can contain the irradiated-dust particles, due to the fragmentation of dust aggregates and the turbulent transportation of dust particles. We also estimate the amount of organic-matter formed on the dust particles by the UV-irradiation dosage. Our results suggest that the non-sticky dust particle in strong turbulent disks can contain the same amount of organic-matter as interplanetary dust particles.

1/12 Jerome de Leon, Discovery and validation of transiting exoplanets with diverse radii and ages
The Kepler, K2, and TESS missions have brought many exciting exoplanet discoveries that yield new insights into the occurrence rate, formation and evolution of exoplanets. This success was driven primarily by the sustained efforts to homogeneously analyse ensembles of light curves to detect new candidate systems and consequently statistically validate or confirm their planetary nature aided by follow-up data. Here, "validation" is different from "confirmation," wherein the former means that there is overwhelming evidence that the transits must be explained by a planet, through elimination of all false positive scenarios, whereas the latter involves determination that the planet's mass is in the substellar regime (Mp<13Mjup). Confirmation via radial velocity (RV) mass measurements have been conducted for planets around bright stars but is impractical for faint or magnetically active stars, and is observationally expensive for the large numbers of planet candidates detected by Kepler and K2. In this talk, I will present the discovery and validation of 37 new transiting planets with various radii and ages using various statistical techniques. Then I will present some insights on the emerging trends observed from young transiting planet population and their implications on the planets evolution during their first hundred million years.
