Theory of Planets in Binary Systems

Abstract

In this talk, I will provide an overview of theoretical investigations of s-type and p-type binary planetary systems. I will discuss the interplay between star formation and planet formation, as well as the unique dynamical influence of binaries on planetary systems. I will focus on a handful of peculiar systems to illustrate the constraints that binaries can provide for planet formation models.
