  • Many transiting planet host stars lack high resolution imaging and thus close stellar sources can be missed. Those unknown stars potentially bias the derivation of the planetary and stellar parameters from the transit light curve, no matter if they are bound or not. In addition, bound stellar companions interact gravitationally with the exoplanet host star, the disk and the planets and can thus influence the formation and evolution of the planetary system strongly. We extended our high… CONTINUE READING
