The XMM-Newton serendipitous survey. V. The Second XMM-Newton serendipitous source catalogue
Aims. Pointed observations with XMM-Newton provide the basis for creating catalogues of X-ray sources detected serendipitously in each field. This paper describes the creation and characteristics ofExpand

WASP-19b: The Shortest Period Transiting Exoplanet Yet Discovered
We report on the discovery of a new extremely short period transiting extrasolar planet, WASP-19b. The planet has mass M pl = 1.15 ± 0.08 MJ , radius R pl = 1.31 ± 0.06 RJ , and orbital period P =Expand

An orbital period of 0.94 days for the hot-Jupiter planet WASP-18b
The ‘hot Jupiters’ that abound in lists of known extrasolar planets are thought to have formed far from their host stars, but migrate inwards through interactions with the proto-planetary disk fromExpand

Line-profile tomography of exoplanet transits - II. A gas-giant planet transiting a rapidly rotating A5 star
We use photometry and time-series spectroscopy to confirm the existence of a gas-giant planet with an orbital period of 1.22 d in orbit around HD 15082. Expand

A high C/O ratio and weak thermal inversion in the atmosphere of exoplanet WASP-12b
The carbon-to-oxygen ratio (C/O) in a planet provides critical information about its primordial origins and subsequent evolution. A primordial C/O greater than 0.8 causes a carbide-dominatedExpand

WASP-1b and WASP-2b: Two new transiting exoplanets detected with SuperWASP and SOPHIE
We have detected low-amplitude radial-velocity variations in two stars, USNO-B1.0 1219‐ 0005465 (GSC 02265‐00107 = WASP‐1) and WASP-2.0 0964‐0543604, which are likely host stars of transiting exoplanets. Expand

Stellar rotation in the Hyades and Praesepe: gyrochronology and braking time-scale
We present the results of photometric surveys for stellar rotation in the Hyades and in Praesepe, using data obtained as part of the SuperWASP exoplanetary transit-search programme. We determinedExpand
