"The Role of Turbulence in Planet Formation"

Abstract. In recent years turbulence has shown to be of major importance for the formation of planets in disks around new born stars. This is true in may respects, from the diffusion of dusty material, heating of gas and dust, turbulence driven coagulation, gravoturbulent formation of planetesimals, migration of planets and the general evolution of disks. This presentation shall provide an concise overview on the current state of planet formation theory and the role numerical simulations of turbulence play within.
