Masses, Radii, and Orbits of Small Kepler Planets: The Transition From Gaseous to Rocky Planets
We report on the masses, sizes, and orbits of the planets orbiting 22 Kepler stars. There are 49 planet candidates around these stars, including 42 detected through transits and 7 revealed by preciseExpand

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

Planets and stellar activity: hide and seek in the CoRoT-7 system
Since the discovery of the transiting super-Earth CoRoT-7b, several investigations have yielded different results for the number and masses of planets present in the system, mainly owing to theExpand

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

WASP-121 b: a hot Jupiter close to tidal disruption transiting an active F star
We present the discovery by the WASP-South survey, in close collaboration with the Euler and TRAPPIST telescopes, of WASP-121 b, a new remarkable shortperiod transiting hot Jupiter, whose planetaryExpand

WASP-52b, WASP-58b, WASP-59b, and WASP-60b: four new transiting close-in giant planets
We present the discovery of four new transiting hot Jupiters, detected mainly from SuperWASP-North and SOPHIE observations. These new planets, WASP-52b, WASP-58b, WASP-59b, and WASP-60b, have orbitalExpand

BGLS: A Bayesian formalism for the generalised Lomb-Scargle periodogram
We provide a formalism that is easy to implement in a code, to describe a Bayesian periodogram that includes weights and a constant offset in data. Expand

Observation of the full 12-hour-long transit of the exoplanet HD 80606b: Warm-Spitzer photometry and SOPHIE spectroscopy
We present new observations of a transit of the 111.4-day-period exoplanet HD 80606b. Due to this long orbital period and to the orientation of the eccentric orbit (e = 0.9), HD 80606b's transitsExpand

Revisiting the transits of CoRoT-7b at a lower activity level
The first super-Earth with measured radius discovered was CoRoT-7b and it has opened the new field of rocky exoplanet characterisation. To better understand this interesting system, new observationsExpand
