Disk sub-structures revealed by ALMA: implications for planet formation.
The Atacama Large Millimeter and sub-millimeter Array (ALMA) has discovered sub-structures in the dust and molecular gas distribution a number of protoplanetary disks. These structures span spatial scales from a few to hundreds of Astronomical Units and are thought to be related to the formation of planets. During my talk I will present some of the most recent ALMA observations of sub-structures in disks and discuss them in the framework of planet formation models.
