Homogeneous studies of transiting extrasolar planets – I. Light-curve analyses
I present a homogeneous analysis of the transit light curves of 14 well-observed transiting extrasolar planets. The light curves are modelled using jktebop, random errors are measured using MonteExpand

Eclipsing binaries in open clusters. II. V453 Cyg in NGC 6871
We derive absolute dimensions of the early B-type detached eclipsing binary V453Cygni (B0.4IV + B0.7IV, P = 3.89d), a member of the open cluster NGC6871. From the analysis of new, high-resolution,Expand

Eclipsing binaries as standard candles: HD 23642 and the distance to the Pleiades
We present a reanalysis of the light curves of HD 23642, a detached eclipsing binary star in the Pleiades open cluster, with emphasis on a detailed error analysis. We compare the masses and radii ofExpand

EL CVn-type binaries - Discovery of 17 helium white dwarf precursors in bright eclipsing binary star systems
The star 1SWASP J024743.37−251549.2 was recently discovered to be a binary star in which an A-type dwarf star eclipses the remnant of a disrupted red giant star (WASP 0247−25 B). The remnant is in aExpand

KIC 8410637: a 408-day period eclipsing binary containing a pulsating giant star
Context. Detached eclipsing binaries (dEBs) are ideal targets for accurately measuring of the masses and radii of their component stars. If at least one of the stars has evolved off the main sequenceExpand

An irradiated brown-dwarf companion to an accreting white dwarf
Interacting compact binary systems provide a natural laboratory in which to study irradiated substellar objects. As the mass-losing secondary (donor) in these systems makes a transition from theExpand

Absolute dimensions of detached eclipsing binaries – I. The metallic‐lined system WW Aurigae
WWAurigae is a detached eclipsing binary composed of two metallic-lined A-type stars orbiting each other every 2.5 days. We have determined the masses and radii of both components to accuracies ofExpand

The eccentric massive binary V380 Cyg: revised orbital elements and interpretation of the intrinsic variability of the primary component
We present a detailed analysis and interpretation of the hig h-mass binary V380 Cyg, based on high-precision space photometry gathered with the Kepler space mission as well as highresolutionExpand

Eclipsing binaries in open clusters – I. V615 Per and V618 Per in h Persei
We have derived absolute dimensions for two early-type main sequence detached eclipsing binaries in the young open cluster hPersei (NGC869). V615Persei has a spectral type of B7V and a period of 13.7Expand
