Figure 5

Inner semi-major axis evolution. The evolution of the inner semi-major axis as a function of time for the first 3 Myr of the evolution of Gliese 667. The figure shows a decreasing semi-major axis due to the combination of Lidov-Kozai cycles with tidal friction, i.e. LKCTF. Note the small scale on the y-axis, where \(a_{0}=12.599999999\).
