About the Authors
  • IAU Symposium 310 takes a broad look at the complexity of planetary systems, in terms of the formation and dynamical evolution of planets, their satellites, minor bodies and space debris, as well as to the habitability of exoplanets, in order to understand and model their physical processes. The main topics covered are diverse, including: studies of the rotation of planets and satellites, including their internal structures; the long term evolution of space debris and satellites; planetary and satellite migration mechanisms; and the role of the Yarkovsky effect on the evolution of the rotating small bodies. Intended for researchers and advanced students studying complex planetary systems, IAU S310 appeals to non-specialists interested in problems such as the habitability of exoplanets, planetary migration in the early Solar System, or the determination of chaotic orbits. This volume provides a valuable insight into the state-of-the-art research in this exciting interdisciplinary field.

    • Provides a fresh overview of the latest in planetary systems dynamics for a broad audience in astronomy, planetary and geophysical sciences, and applied mathematics
    • Interdisciplinary volume encourages new, more efficient, approaches to understand and model physical processes in complex systems
    • An ideal introduction for non-specialist researchers working in related areas to gain new insights and foster new collaborations
