The Quantization of Planetary Systems and their Dependency on Stellar Rotation​

By Jean Paul Zoghbi

Key Findings

Planetary Orbits are Discrete

Exoplanets' angular momentum, distances from star, orbital periods, are all discrete with striking similarity to Bohr's atomic model

Orbital Periods Depend on Parent Star Spin Rotation

Extra-solar planets tend to form discrete orbits that are half-integer multiples of their star's spin rotation

Prediction of planets location in extra-solar systems

The models equations are used to predict the orbital periods and distances of extra-solar planets from their parent star
