Abstract

We are performing calculations of the formation of Jupiter via core nucleated accretion and gas capture. The calculations model the growth of a solid core from an evolving disk of planetesimals and the growth of a contracting gaseous envelope. We present results of the early phases of formation. The evolution of the solids accounts for growth and fragmentation, viscous and gravitational stirring, and for drag-assisted migration and velocity damping operated by the disk s gas. The envelope structure accounts for ...
