Protoplanetary Disks and Their Evolution

Protoplanetary Disks and Their Evolution
by Jonathan P. Williams, Lucas A. Cieza

Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 65

Description:
Flattened, rotating disks of cool dust and gas extending for tens to hundreds of AU are found around almost all low mass stars shortly after their birth. This review addresses observations of the outer parts, beyond 1 AU, of protoplanetary disks with a focus on recent infrared and (sub-)millimeter results and an eye to the promise of new facilities in the immediate future.
