Fig. 4

Evolution of the semi-major axis and eccentricity of a planet at each value of \(f_{\mathrm {disk}}\) for the \(e_{\mathrm {bin}}=0.05, \mu =0.2\) system. Red, blue and purple lines represent the semi-major axis, planet eccentricity, and critical radius, respectively. The planet embedded at the inner edge of the circumbinary disk experiences rapid migration to the outside of unstable boundary, followed by modest oscillation near the boundary
