《奇异地外行星》

More than 3000 exoplanets (planets outside the Solar system) have been discovered in the last two decades, including some Earth-like planets that could harbor water and life. However, many exoplanetary systems are "extreme" and quite unlike our own Solar System: hot Jupiters,super-Earths, compact multi-planet systems, circumbinary planets, etc.These extreme planetary systems are changing our view of planetary formation. They raise many puzzles and require new theoretical ideas and tools for their proper understanding.
