  • EXOCOMETS AT LARGE ORBITAL RADII AND THEIR INWARD TRANSPORT IN DEBRIS DISCS 

    Marino Estay, Sebastián (2018-10-20)
    Planetary systems are not only composed of planets, but also of km-sized rocky and icy bodies that are confined within belts similar to the Asteroid and Kuiper belt in the Solar System. Mutual collisions within these belts ...
