Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission VIII. CoRoT-7b: the first Super-Earth with measured radius
Aims. We report the discovery of very shallow (ΔF/F ≈ 3.4× 10 −4 ), periodic dips in the light curve of an active V = 11.7 G9V star observed by the CoRoT satellite, which we interpret as caused by aExpand

Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission. II. CoRoT-Exo-2b: a transiting planet around an
Context. The CoRoT mission, a pioneer in exoplanet searches from space, has completed its first 150 days of continuous observations of ∼12 000 stars in the galactic plane. An analysis of the raw dataExpand

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

A temperate rocky super-Earth transiting a nearby cool star
M dwarf stars, which have masses less than 60 per cent that of the Sun, make up 75 per cent of the population of the stars in the Galaxy. The atmospheres of orbiting Earth-sized planets areExpand

HD 17156b: A Transiting Planet with a 21.2 Day Period and an Eccentric Orbit
We report the detection of transits by the 3.1MJup companion to the V=8.17 G0V star HD 17156. The transit was observed by three independant observers on Sept. 9/10, 2007 (two in central Italy and oneExpand

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 HARPS search for southern extra-solar planets XXXII. Only 4 planets in the Gl~581 system
The Gl 581 planetary system has generated wide interest, because its 4 planets include both the lowest mass planet known around a main sequence star other than the Sun and the first super-EarthExpand

Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission. I. CoRoT-Exo-1b: a low-density short-period plan
Context. The pioneer space mission for photometric planet searches, CoRoT, steadily monitors about 12,000 stars in each of its fields of view; it is able to detect transit candidates early in theExpand

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
