Abstract

Abstract The comparison of Uranus' and Neptune's observations to their theories leads to systematic residuals whose meaning is yet unknown. One of the possible explanations would be systematic errors in the observations. In this paper, it is supposed that those discrepancies are due to an unknown planet in the Solar System. Based on this supposition, we look for the best region for a Planet X so as to explain those systematic residuals.
