At the moment it is known that a star of spectral type F7V, of mass 1.24 M ⊙ , radius 1.31 R ⊙ and effective temperature 6400 K (Pollacco et al. 2009) is the host star of a gas giant with the mass of about 2 m J . HD 128311 The system HD 128311 is a very good example of a system with the 2:1 resonant configuration. It was formed around a K0 star with the effective temperature equal to 4635 K and metallicity [Fe/H] = − 0.04 (Saffe Lenvatinib concentration et al. 2008). Its mass is 0.84 M ⊙ . The age of the
star is about 500 × 106 years (Moro-Martin et al. 2010). In this system, the debris disc has been discovered (Beichman et al. 2005). Rein and Papaloizou (2009) using numerical simulations were able to reproduce the properties of this configuration and suggested the mechanism of its formation. According to their model, the resonance capture occurs due to convergent migration with the participation of the stochastic forces
present in the turbulent disc. GJ 876 The best candidate for a system with a 2:1 resonance was till very recently GJ 876. Its structure, namely that of three planets, two of them forming the 2:1 mean-motion resonance (Marcy et al. 2001), orbiting around a star of spectral type M4V with mass 0.33 M ⊙ , radius 0.36 R ⊙ , metallicity [Fe/H] = 0.05 and age 2.5 × 109 years (Correia et al. 2010), was believed to be relatively well known. However, Rivera Ruxolitinib datasheet et al. (2010) have shown that even the most robust mean-motion resonance can appear illusive if new planets are discovered in the system. In GJ 876 the 2:1 resonance still holds, but its evidence is not so strong any more. The newly discovered planet (GJ 876 e) forms with the other two the Laplace resonance. Kepler-9 The 2:1 resonance is observed also in the system Kepler-9. SAHA HDAC Kepler-9 is a star similar to our Sun. Its effective temperature is equal to 5777 ± 61 K, its metallicity is [Fe/H] = 0.12 ± 0.04 and its mass is the same as that of the
Sun. The radius of the star is estimated to be 1.1 R ⊙ , and the age 4–6 × 10 9 (Holman et al. 2010). The system contains two planets, Kepler-9 b and heptaminol c with masses similar to that of Saturn and close to the 2:1 resonance. There is also a third planet, Kepler-9 d, with a structure similar to that of a rocky planet and with mass in the range 4–16 m ⊕ . HD 160691 No less interesting is the system HD 160691 known also as μAra. The central star is a G5 dwarf with the effective temperature equal to 5807 K and the mass of 1.08 M ⊙ (McCarthy et al. 2004). In the system there are at least four planets, the fourth has been discovered by Goździewski et al. (2007) and Pepe et al. (2007) and forms with the planet b a resonant configuration.
