The physicochemical mechanism of the formation of planetary systems

  • Georgy Gladyshev


The planets and their satellites are formed in accordance with similar mechanisms as a result of spatially periodic condensation of gaseous matter during the formation of the central body.

Using the diffusion theory one can calculate the age of the planets and explain the nature of the Titius-Bode law.
