Abstract

The dynamical influence of Jupiter-sized planets still embedded in protostellar disks is studied by means of numerical simulations. The three-dimensional structure of the disk is fully taken into account. Assuming a disk mass of 3.5× 10-3 M? within 2 and 13 AU, typical values for the vertical thickness H/r= 0.05 and viscosity of the disk?? 4× 10-3, we find for the mass accretion rate onto the planet a value of 6× 10-5 MJ yr-1 and for the migration timescale a value of 10 5 yr. These results are in excellent agreement with previously ...
