Abstract

In this contribution we present some preliminary results on the dynamical evolution of two planet systems around stellar hosts evolving from the main sequence to the white dwarf phase. The aim is to study the instabilities triggered by stellar evolution that may bring planets onto the stellar surface or produce planetary scale collisions (hence debris) that could explain the metallic atmospheric pollution observed in white dwarfs.
