The PLATO 2.0 mission
PLATO 2.0 has recently been selected for ESA’s M3 launch opportunity (2022/24). Providing accurate key planet parameters (radius, mass, density and age) in statistical numbers, it addressesExpand

SOPHIE velocimetry of Kepler transit candidates XVII. The physical properties of giant exoplanets within 400 days of period
While giant extrasolar planets have been studied for more than two decades now, there are still some open questions such as their dominant formation and migration process, as well as theirExpand

Magnetic activity in the photosphere of CoRoT-Exo-2a. Active longitudes and short-term spot cycle in
Context. The space experiment CoRoT has recently detected transits by a hot Jupiter across the disk of an active G7V star (CoRoTExo-2a) that can be considered as a good proxy for the Sun at an age ofExpand

An Earth-sized planet with an Earth-like density
Recent analyses of data from the NASA Kepler spacecraft have established that planets with radii within 25 per cent of the Earth’s () are commonplace throughout the Galaxy, orbiting at least 16.5 perExpand

The kepler-10 planetary system revisited by harps-n : a hot rocky world and a solid neptune-mass planet
Kepler-10b was the first rocky planet detected by the Kepler satellite and confirmed with radial velocity follow-up observations from Keck-HIRES. The mass of the planet was measured with a precisionExpand

SOPHIE velocimetry of Kepler transit candidates VII. A false-positive rate of 35% for Kepler close-in giant candidates
The false-positive probability (FPP) of Kepler transiting candidates is a key value for statistical studies of candidate properties. A previous investigation of the stellar population in the KeplerExpand

The GAPS Programme with HARPS-N at TNG - XIV. Investigating giant planet migration history via improved eccentricity and mass determination for 231 transiting planets
We carried out a Bayesian homogeneous determination of the orbital parameters of 231 transiting giant planets (TGPs) that are alone or have distant companions; we employed differential evolutionExpand

Near-infrared Thermal Emission Detections of a number of hot Jupiters and the Systematics of Ground-based Near-infrared Photometry
We present detections of the near-infrared thermal emission of three hot Jupiters and one brown-dwarf using the Wide-field Infrared Camera (WIRCam) on the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT). TheseExpand
