REVealing the Effects of Star-planet Interactions

Project description

New study could shed more light on how exoplanets interact with stars

Over the past three decades, exoplanetary science has revealed a great number of previously unknown planets orbiting other stars. Although considerable investments have been made towards the study of these new discoveries, the interaction between planets and their host stars remains poorly understood. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the REVErSI project will conduct a theoretical study of star–planet interactions using innovative analytical models and state-of-the-art simulations. The project will study the tidal and magnetic interactions of the most common types of exoplanets around low-mass stars. Focus will also be placed on the variation of stellar activity as it offers a viable route to estimate exoplanetary magnetic fields.
