We present results on our investigations of planet–disk interaction in protoplanetary disks. For the hydrodynamic simulations we use a second order semi–discrete total variation diminishing (TVD) scheme for systems of hyperbolic conservation laws on curvilinear grids.
Our previously used method conserves the momentum in two dimensional systems with rotational symmetry. Additionally, we modified our simulation techniques for inertial angular momentum conservation even in two dimensional rotating polar coordinate systems.
The basic numerical practices are outlined briefly. In addition we present the results of a common planet–disk interaction setup.
