The importance of astrometric measurements for the characterisation of multi-planet systems

Alexandre C. M. Correia
Universidade de Coimbra

Dynamical studies are very important to fully understand and characterise multi-planetary systems. However, the complete architecture of these systems can only be obtained through astrometric measurements. In particular, the classification of the orbital types and the determination of the habitable zones rely on an accurate determination of the mutual inclinations. In this talk, we will revisit the main limitations of traditional detection techniques, and illustrate the importance of astrometry with some real examples.
