Dynamics of the WASP-3 system Dynamics of the WASP-3 system Presentation Transcript

  • Dynamical Stability of the WASP-3 System Florian Freistetter Barbara Funk, Elke Pilat-Lohinger, Richard Schwarz HCM8, Bad Hofgastein 22. March 2011
  • YETI Young Exoplanet Transit Initative
  • YETI Gunma/Japan: Hidenori Takahashi Lulin/Taiwan: Wen-Ping Chen Seline Chia-Ling Hu Xinglong/China: Zhen-Yu Wu,Zhou Xu Byurakan/Armenia: Hayk Harutyunyan Tigran Movessian Rohzen/Bulgaria: Dinko Dimitrov Diana Kjurkchieva Stara Lesna/Slovak Rep.: Theo Pribulla Jano Budaj, Martin Vanko Torun/Poland: Gracjan Maciejewski Andrzej Niedzielski Rostock/Germany: Ronald Redmer Nadine Nettelmann Ulrike Kramm Jena/Germany: Ralph Neuhäuser, Ronny Errmann, Stefanie Rätz, Markus Mugrauer, Florian Freistetter Munich/Germany: Johannes Koppenhoefer Granada/Spain: Matilde Fernandez Armazones/Chile: Rolf Chini, Vera Hoffmeister CIDA/Venezuela: Cesar Briceno CfA Harvard/USA: Willie Torres Stony Brook/USA: Fred Walter Swathmore/USA: Erin Jensen, David Cohen Gettysburg/USA: Larry Marschall Big Bear Obs/USA: Aglae Kellerer
  • WASP-3 WASP-3: F7V star with 1.24 Msun Planet, found in 2007:
    • M=2.06 Mjup
    • a=0.0317 AU
    • e=0
    -> Variations in the Transit time?
  • WASP-3 MNRAS New observations of WASP-3b Transits
  • WASP-3 O-C Diagram litertature data new data
  • WASP-3 additional planet? 15M Earth at 0.0507 AU (close to 2:1 resonance) additional family of solutions close to 5:3 res
  • Observations vs. Simulations
    • Observations can not give exact orbits
    • Additional source of information to constrain observations or the possibility of additional objects
    • -> Dynamics
    • Can numerical simulations help?
    47 Uma HD 4208
  • Stability Diagram
  • Stability Diagram:changing e_pl Eccentricity of Wasp-3b has to be small How eccentric can WASp-3b be? e_pl=0.05 e_pl=0.1
  • Stability Diagram:changing inclination No big difference... Region of instability dissolves i=10° i=20° i=30°
  • Stability Diagram:changing mass and eccentricity M=1.93 MJ M=2.19 MJ e=0.00 e=0.05 e=0.10
  • Stability Diagram:changing test particle mass no big difference between 1, 7 and 15 Earthmasses M=1 MEarth M=7 MEarth M=15 MEarth
  • Constraints? Dynamical constraints on the eccentricity and mass of WASP-3b better constraints on WASP-3c -> more observations -> analysis of resonances WASP-3c lies inside the stable region -> but very close to the chaotic region
  • Transit-Time Variations Resonances enhance TTVs 2:1 res (0.0503AU) 0.0507AU away from res 0.0507AU, e=0.1
  • Transit-Time Variations 2:1 res (0.0503AU) 3:2 res (0.0415AU) 2:1 has larger stable region for low e
  • Transit-Time Variations 5:2 res (0.0584AU) 5:3 res (0.0446AU) 5:2 stable for low e; 5:3 unstable
  • Conclusions
    • published values of WASP3c can lead to stable orbits
    • WASP3c lies very close to chaotic region
    • 2:1 resonance is a better place for a planet than 5:3 or 3:2
    • new observational campaigns are currently ongoing
    • -> new data will lead to new parameters of WASP3c
    • -> new dynamical constraints
