TROY meeting I

The TROY project is a multi-technique observational and theoretical effort to understand the formation and evolution of planetary systems from the detection and characterization of the first exo-trojan planets. The two stability regions in the two-body problem (Lagrangian points L4 and L5) can host bodies librating around them, as in the case of Jupiter in the Solar System. Since these bodies are outgrowths of the planet formation process, the detection of the first exotrojans will open a new scientific window to investigate the clues of planet formation and migration in outer planetary systems. In this first meeting of the TROY project, we will review the status of the different branches we are exploring as well as the future prospects to continue our search for the first co-orbital planets.
