Recent analyses of Kepler exoplanet data have reported a dichotomy in the eccentricity distribution displayed by systems where a single planet transits compared with that displayed by multi-planet systems. In this talk, I will present an N-body simulation study that examines the hypothesis that the dichotomy has arisen because inner ...
