Planets form in gas/dust disks around young stars. The interaction
between the disk influences both the orbit and the growth of planets.
In this talk I will describe the results of numerical studies of
this problem, focusing on the possible differences between the
gas and dust distribution, and the effects the disk heating caused
by the planet can have on its orbital evolution.
