When the Sun ascends the red giant branch (RGB), its luminosity will increase and all the planets will receive much greater irradiation than they do now. Jupiter, in particular, might end up more highly irradiated than the hot Neptune GJ 436b and, hence, could appropriately be termed a “hot Jupiter.” When their stars go through the RGB or asymptotic giant branch stages, many of the currently known Jupiter-mass planets in several-AU orbits will receive levels of irradiation comparable to the hot…

RE-INFLATED WARM JUPITERS AROUND RED GIANTS
Since the discovery of the first transiting hot Jupiters, models have sought to explain the anomalously large radii of highly irradiated gas giants. We now know that the size of hot Jupiter radius
The fates of Solar system analogues with one additional distant planet
The potential existence of a distant planet (“Planet Nine”) in the Solar system has prompted a re-think about the evolution of planetary systems. As the Sun transitions from a main sequence star into
THERMAL PROCESSES GOVERNING HOT-JUPITER RADII
There have been many proposed explanations for the larger-than-expected radii of some transiting hot Jupiters, including either stellar or orbital energy deposition deep in the atmosphere or deep in
Probing Planetary Formation and Evolution: Transiting Planets and Occulting Disks
The circumstellar environments of young stellar objects (YSOs) involve complex dynamical interactions between dust and gas that directly influence the formation of planets. However, our understanding
The properties of planets around giant stars
Context: More than 50 exoplanets have been found around giant stars, revealing different properties when compared to planets orbiting solar-type stars. In particular, they are Super-Jupiters and are
Simulations of two-planet systems through all phases of stellar evolution: implications for the instability boundary and white dwarf pollution
Exoplanets have been observed at many stages of their host star's life, including the main-sequence (MS), subgiant and red giant branch stages. Also, polluted white dwarfs (WDs) likely represent
The grain size survival threshold in one-planet post-main-sequence exoplanetary systems
The size distribution and orbital architecture of dust, grains, boulders, asteroids, and major planets during the giant branch phases of evolution dictate the preponderance and observability of the
KELT-3b: A HOT JUPITER TRANSITING A V = 9.8 LATE-F STAR
We report the discovery of KELT-3b, a moderately inflated transiting hot Jupiter with a mass of , radius of 1.345 ± 0.072 RJ, and an orbital period of 2.7033904 ± 0.000010 days. The host star,
KELT-12b: A P ∼ 5 day, Highly Inflated Hot Jupiter Transiting a Mildly Evolved Hot Star
We announce the discovery of KELT-12b, a highly inflated Jupiter-mass planet transiting the mildly evolved, V = 10.64 host star TYC 2619-1057-1. We followed up the initial transit signal in the
RADIAL VELOCITY OBSERVATIONS AND LIGHT CURVE NOISE MODELING CONFIRM THAT KEPLER-91b IS A GIANT PLANET ORBITING A GIANT STAR
Kepler-91b is a rare example of a transiting hot Jupiter around a red giant star, providing the possibility to study the formation and composition of hot Jupiters under different conditions compared

We study the survival of gas planets around stars with masses in the range 1-5 M☉, as these stars evolve off the main sequence. We show that planets with masses smaller than one Jupiter mass do not

TLDR
The presence of two nearly Earth-sized bodies orbiting the post-red-giant, hot B subdwarf star KIC 05807616 is reported, which may be the dense cores of evaporated giant planets that were transported closer to the star during the engulfment and triggered the mass loss necessary for the formation of the hot B subswarf.
