The discovery of extrasolar planets has revealed an unexpected diversity among planetary systems. Our Solar System appears to be a “minority case”, given that about 75% of the stars seem to have planets with characteristics that are absent in our own system. Understanding the origin of such diversity is a major goal in planet formation and evolution models. I will discuss several key processes and particularly the effects produced when a planet in the system grows to the status of “giant”. The talk will focus on the origin of the structure of the Solar System and on the origin of the almost ubiquitous systems of close-in super-Earth.
