Abstract (from CDS):
We present circumstellar disk models for two pre-main-sequence objects, T Tau and SU Aur. The models are based on interferometric data from infrared and millimeter wavelengths and infrared photometry from the literature. The physical properties of the disk are examined by calculating parameter probabilities based on a passive, flat-disk model. The model adequately fits the data for SU Aur but not for T Tau. We find that there are significant differences in the physical parameters suggested by the individual data sets. The size of the inner disk radius as implied by the infrared interferometry data (∼tenths of AU) is larger than expected for a flat-disk model. This discrepancy is discussed in consideration of more complex disk models that include the presence of a hot, inner region or wall in the disk.
