Title:Possible explanation of why the Solar System is almost planar
Seminar:Slow Pitch Seminar
Speaker:Vadim Kaloshin, Penn State
Abstract: We consider a spatial Newtonian 3 body problem. One can think of the Sun - Jupiter - Asteroid system with Asteroid performing spatial motions. For a simplified model we describe a so-called Lidov-Kozai resonance. It turns out that the spatial motion of Asteroid are fairly unstable and could easily lead to collisions with inner planets.
