This course will cover the following subjects:

- The physics and chemistry of protoplanetary disks.

- Dust evolution and planetesimal formation.

- Formation of terrestrial and gas-giant planets.

- The physics of planet-disk interactions and planet migration.

- Young stellar objects from an observational point of view.

Learning Outcome

Introduce the students to the fundamental theoretical concepts in protoplanetary disks and planet formation.

Bring together students interested in these subjects with some of the world’s experts in an environment fostering interactions and exchange of ideas, allowing the students to develop their international network.

Encourage the students to continue working in these fields, emphasizing the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to research in these active areas, leveraging on the strong interactions between groups at the Niels Bohr Institute and the Centre for Star and Planet Formation at the Natural History Museum.

The school will cover basic observational and theoretical aspects of protoplanetary disks and planet formation by means of lectures and presentations. The learning experience will be complemented with exercise tutorials. The external lecturers are internationally recognized leaders in their field, with excellent teaching abilities.
