Stuart Clark
Extrasolar Planets
The Search for New Worlds

This book provides an overview of the developments in the search for planetary-sized bodies orbiting Sun-like stars.

The author discusses the formation and evolution of stars and the processes leading to the formation of protoplanetary discs, planetesimals, embryonic planets and complete planetary systems. He also examined are the techniques currently being employed for the detection of extrasolar planets and the results of those searches, as well as the theoretical problems posed by giant planets with small orbital radii and those in eccentric orbits, brown dwarfs, and the possible planets around pulsars. The final chapter speculates on finding habitable and inhabited worlds.
