title: Planets in Protoplanetary Disks: Dynamical Processes and Observational Prospects
abstract: Dynamical processes in protoplanetary disks are important in understanding planet formation and evolution. One important dynamical process in protoplanetary disks is the gravitational interaction between the disk and the planet. Such interaction will cause the exchange of the angular momentum between the planet and the disk, resulting in radial migration of the planet. In this talk, we review the fundamentals of this process and discuss the planet migration. We then review the state-of-the-art observations of protoplanetary disks and discuss how they can be used to understand the dynamical processes and basic properties of protoplanetary disks.
