The evolution of Protoplanetary disks

Planets form from the dust and gas contained in protoplanetary disks around young stars. Studying protoplanetary disks is essential for understanding the formation of planetary systems, including our Solar System. In this talk, I will provide a brief overview of observations regarding the evolution of protoplanetary disks in various environments.
