There are two classical models that explain the formation of the regular satellites of the giant planets of our Solar System. The minimum mass model proposed by Lunine and Stevenson (1982), which could be interpreted as a equivalent to the formation of the planets, but on the circumplanetary disk scale. And the gas-starved model proposed by Canup and Ward (2002), in which the material that exists for the formation of satellites in the circumplanetary disk is not enough and it is necessary that material coming from the cicum-stellar disk through the spirals arms that connect the two discs (Lubow et. al. 1999, Kley 1999). These two models do not fully explain the characteristics of the satellite systems we know, but they have been successful in many ways. The main difference between these models is in the flow of materials to the circumplanetary disc. In this master dissertation project we propose to study this flow. With this knoledge we can have necessary information to propose of a mixed model that takes advantage of the best qualities of each model. (AU)
