IA/U.Porto Seminar - Improving our knowledge on planetary systems using dynamics - 9 novembro 2016

In some planetary systems, the mutual interactions between the multiple planets and the star are strong and the orbits deviate from the traditional Keplerian ellipses. Dynamical studies are then very important to fully understand and characterise these systems. Moreover, they can provide additional information about the planets such as their true masses and internal structures. I will present some techniques used to analyse these complex systems, illustrating with some real examples.
