My Research in Astrophysics
Formation of Exo-Planetary Systems
Jean Paul’s Research Paper was Published with PASA in 2011
Jean Paul has published a theory on the quantization of extra-solar planetary systems in the peer-reviewed journal of the Publications of the Astronomical Society of Australia (PASA) 28(3) 2011, 177-201. The paper is titled: ‘Quantization of Planetary Systems and its Dependency on Stellar Rotation‘.
Planetary Orbits are Quantized
The Orbital period (days) of newly formed planets is directly related to the parent star spin rotation rate.
Quantization is directly related to Stellar Rotation
Planetary Orbital parameters follow half-integers orbits that depend on stellar rotation.
Statistically Significant Results
Over more than 500 Exo-planets have been included in the study producing statistically significant results.
The Research predicts a potentially new planet in the Solar System
If a planet was ever to be discovered between the Sun and Mercury, the research paper predicts it to be at 0.169 AU from the Sun
