Abstract

We investigate the evolution of young protoplanets under the influence of rapidly passing giant through their swarm. A nonhomogenous system of protoplanetary cores affected by a gas drag is modelled and we perform numerical experiment to see its response to rapidly migrating giant planet. We are particularly exploring a little cell of parameter space of such swarm, looking for the cores highest survival rate. This rate is still high enough to avoid the fate of the Last of Mohicans and guarantees further formation of terrestrial planets close to their original location.
