γ Doradus Stars: Defining a New Class of Pulsating Variables
ABSTRACT In this paper we describe a new class of pulsating stars, the prototype of which is the bright, early, F‐type dwarf γ Doradus. These stars typically have between 1 and 5 periods ranging fromExpand
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

ESPRESSO: The next European exoplanet hunter
The acronym ESPRESSO stems for Echelle SPectrograph for RockyExoplanets and Stable Spectroscopic Observations; this instrument will be the next VLThigh resolution spectrograph. Expand
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
Fourier analysis of non-Blazhko ab-type RR Lyrae stars observed with the Kepler space telescope
Nineteen of the ∼40 RR Lyr stars in the Kepler field have been identified as candidate non-Blazhko (or unmodulated) stars. In this paper we present the results of Fourier decomposition of theExpand
Stellar evolution through the ages: period variations in galactic RRab stars as derived from the GEOS database and TAROT telescopes
Context. The theory of stellar evolution can be more closely tested if we have the opportunity to measure new quantities. Nowadays, observations of galactic RR Lyr stars are available on a timeExpand
The double-mode nature of the HADS star GSC 00144-03031 and the Petersen diagram of the class
The double-mode pulsation of GSC 00144-03031 has been detected when searching for COROT targets. A very large dataset composed of 4722 photometric measurements was collected at six observatories inExpand
Asteroseismic analysis of the CoRoT \delta-Scuti star HD174936
We present an analysis of the \delta-Scuti star object HD 174936 (ID 7613) observed by CoRoT during the first short run SRc01 (27 days). A total number of 422 frequencies we are extracted from theExpand
CoRoT Measures Solar-Like Oscillations and Granulation in Stars Hotter Than the Sun
The CoRoT (Convection Rotation and Planetary Transits) satellite, launched in December 2006, has now measured oscillations and the stellar granulation signature in three main sequence stars that are noticeably hotter than the sun. Expand
