The 55 Cancri planetary system: fully self-consistent N-body constraints and a dynamical analysis


[ An illustration of the orbital distances and relative sizes of the four innermost planets known to orbit the star 55 Cancri A (bottom) in comparison with planets in own inner Solar System (top). Both Jupiter and the Jupiter-mass planet 55 Cancri d are outside this picture, orbiting their host star with a distance of nearly 5 astronomical units (au), where one au is equal to the average between earth and sun.
