This single, coherent review of the theory behind extrasolar planet formation and interaction systematically covers all aspects of the topic, including different formation processes, planet–planet scattering, giant planets and brown dwarfs. With a chapter on observation, careful referencing and an elaborate bibliography at the end of each chapter, this is indispensable reading for researchers, theorists and observers alike.
