Abstract

Numerical simulations show that a Jupiter mass planet is able to dig the gas material along its path. Resulting from this, a density gap is produced within the disk which may represent a large-scale density feature. Based on these hydrodynamical simulations we investigate the possibility to trace planets in circumstellar disks by means of infrared interferometry. On the basis of three-dimensional self-consistent radiative transfer calculations, images of this system were created which provide the basis for the simulation ...
