Next-Generation Exoplanet Population Synthesis: The Influence of Stellar Mass
Presented by Remo Burn
University of Bern, Switzerland

Tuesday, January 21, 2020
11:00 A.M. in 169-336

I present a new set of planetary populations calculated using the updated Generation III Bern model of planet formation and evolution. In particular, we studied the influence of the stellar mass on the resulting population. The occurrence rates of different planetary types are strong functions of the stellar mass. Overall, we find a trend towards lower efficiency of solid accretion with increasing stellar mass. Finally, I will briefly review some challenges in planet formation theories and discuss the parameter ranges where these can be overcome.
