disk dispersal
Transition discs with evacuated inner cavities are expected to be a natural outcome of the interplay between X-ray driven photoevaporation (XPE) and giant planet formation. Massive planets can reduce the inflow of material from the outer to the inner disc, therefore triggering the earlier onset of disc dispersal due to ...
