March 17, 2017: Young Planets in Protoplanetary Disks: Theory Confronts Observations

Posted on Jan 18, 2017 in Seminars

Recently commissioned telescopes and instruments (e.g., Subaru, GPI, VLA, ALMA, EVLA) are now finally able to resolve the protoplanetary disk down to the AU scale, and a rich variety of disk features have been revealed. In this talk, I will discuss how these observations can constrain protoplanetary disk dynamics and planet formation theory.
