10/21/2016 - Debris Disks and Distant Perturbers: The Transient State of the HD 106906 Disk


12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Geology 3814

Presented By:
Erica Nesvold - Carnegie Institute of Washington


The HD 106906 system harbors an asymmetric disk and a very distant (>650 au) planetary-mass companion. We use collisional and dynamical simulations to investigate the interactions between the disk and the companion, and to use the disk’s observed morphology to place constraint’s on the companion’s orbit.
