Abstract

I review the processes that govern protoplanetary disc evolution, focusing in particular on the outer regions of discs (beyond a few tens of AU). I will highlight the mechanisms by which gas is removed from the outer disc, and discuss a number of new theoretical results in this field. I will also consider the link to observations, and discuss how observations of both discs and planets can inform our understanding of how protoplanetary discs evolve.
