Abstract

The aim of this dissertation is to study the dynamical interactions occurring between a forming planet and its surrounding protostellar environment. This task is accomplished by means of both two-and three-dimensional numerical simulations. In order to render the proper development of the work, results from such calculations are presented according to the same temporal order they were achieved. The first part of my research plan concerned global simulations in three dimensions. These were intended to investigate the large- ...
