On the ages of planetary systems with mean-motion resonances.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present preliminary though statistically significant evidence that shows that multiplanetary systems that exhibit a 2/1 period commensurability are in general younger than multiplanetary systems without commensurabilities, or even systems with other commensurabilities. An immediate possible conclusion is that the 2/1 mean-motion resonance in planetary systems tends to be disrupted after typically a few Gyrs.
