The role of multiplicity in disk evolution and planet formation

Martinache, Frantz; Hillenbrand, Lynne; Kraus, Adam L; Ireland, Michael

Description

The past decade has seen a revolution in our understanding of protoplanetary disk evolution and planet formation in single-star systems. However, the majority of solar-type stars form in binary systems, so the impact of binary companions on protoplanetary disks is an important element in our understanding of planet formation. We have compiled a combined multiplicity/disk census of Taurus-Auriga, plus a restricted sample of close binaries in other regions, in order to explore the role of...[Show more]
