We present improved physical parameters for four hot Jupiters: KELT-7 b, HAT-P-14 b, WASP-29 b, WASP-95 b, and a hot Neptune: WASP-156 b, by performing critical and rigorous analysis of the time-series observations from the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS). Being a space-based telescope, the transit photometric data obtained by TESS are free from any noise component due to the interference of Earth’s atmosphere. In our analysis of the observed data, we have used critical noise… 


Precise Photometric Transit Follow-up Observations of Five Close-in Exoplanets: Update on Their Physical Properties
We report the results of the high precision photometric follow-up observations of five transiting hot jupiters - WASP-33b, WASP-50b, WASP-12b, HATS-18b and HAT-P-36b. The observations are made from
Improving transit characterisation with Gaussian process modelling of stellar variability
Context. New photometric space missions to detect and characterise transiting exoplanets are focusing on bright stars to obtain high cadence, high signal-to-noise light curves. Since these missions
Kepler Presearch Data Conditioning I - Architecture and Algorithms for Error Correction in Kepler Light Curves
This article introduces the completely new and significantly improved version of Presearch Data Conditioning (PDC) which was implemented in Kepler SOC version 8.0, which reliably corrects errors in the light curves while at the same time preserving planet transits and other astrophysically interesting signals.
Kepler Presearch Data Conditioning II - A Bayesian Approach to Systematic Error Correction
With the unprecedented photometric precision of the Kepler spacecraft, significant systematic and stochastic errors on transit signal levels are observable in the Kepler photometric data. These
Spitzer Transit Follow-up of Planet Candidates from the K2 Mission
We present precision 4.5 $\mu$m Spitzer transit photometry of eight planet candidates discovered by the K2 mission: K2-52 b, K2-53 b, EPIC 205084841.01, K2-289 b, K2-174 b, K2-87 b, K2-90 b, and
Measurement of the Nodal Precession of WASP-33 b via Doppler Tomography
We have analyzed new and archival time series spectra taken six years apart during transits of the hot Jupiter WASP-33 b, and spectroscopically resolved the line profile perturbation caused by the
The Kepler Pixel Response Function
Kepler seeks to detect sequences of transits of Earth-size exoplanets orbiting Solar-like stars. Such transit signals are on the order of 100 ppm. The high photometric precision demanded by Kepler
That's How We Roll: The NASA K2 Mission Science Products and Their Performance Metrics
Improvements in K2 operations and science data analysis resulting from 1.5 yr of experience with this new mission concept will support continuation of K2's already high level of scientific productivity in an extended K2 mission.
Transiting hot Jupiters from WASP-South, Euler and TRAPPIST : WASP-95b to WASP-101b
We report the discovery of the transiting exoplanets WASP-95b, WASP-96b, WASP-97b, WASP-98b, WASP-99b, WASP-100b and WASP-101b. All are hot Jupiters with orbital periods in the range 2.1–5.7 d,
Gaussian process modelling of granulation and oscillations in red giant stars
The analysis of photometric time series in the context of transiting planet surveys suffers from the presence of stellar signals, often dubbed ‘stellar noise’. These signals, caused by stellar
