For the most compact exoplanetary systems like Hot-Jupiter systems, star-planet tidal interactions are likely to have played a major role in the orbital architecture and rotational evolution of the planets and their host star through tidal dissipation. From recent studies, tidal dissipation is known to vary considerably with the dynamical ...
