Context. The space mission CoRoT is devoted to the analysis of stellar variability and the photometric detection of extrasolar planets. Aims. We present the list of planetary transit candidates detected in the first short run observed by CoRoT that targeted SRc01, towards the Galactic center in the direction of Aquila, which lasted from April to May 2007. Methods. Among the acquired data, we analyzed those for 1269 sources in the chromatic bands and 5705 in the monochromatic band. Instrumental… Expand
CoRoT: Harvest of the exoplanet program
One of the objectives of the CoRoT mission is the search for transiting extrasolar planets using high-precision photometry, and the accurate characterization of their fundamental parameters. TheExpand
The rotation of field stars from CoRoT data
We present period measurements of a large sample of field stars in the solar neighbourhood, observed by the COnvection ROtation and planetary Transits (CoRoT) satellite in two different directions ofExpand
Limits to the presence of transiting circumbinary planets in CoRoT data
The CoRoT mission during its flight-phase 2007-2012 delivered the light-curves for over 2000 eclipsing binaries. Data from the Kepler mission have proven the existence of several transitingExpand
Planets, candidates, and binaries from the CoRoT/Exoplanet programme. The CoRoT transit catalogue
The CoRoT space mission observed 163 665 stars over 26 stellar fields in the faint star channel. The exoplanet teams detected a total of 4123 transit-like features in the 177 454 light curves. WeExpand
Detection of Neptune-size planetary candidates with CoRoT data. Comparison with the planet occurrence rate derived from Kepler
Context. The CoRoT space mission has been searching for transiting planets since the end of December 2006. It has led to the detection of about twenty Jupiter-size planets and three planets withExpand
K2-111 b − a short period super-Earth transiting a metal poor, evolved old star
Context. From a light curve acquired through the K2 space mission, the star K2-111(EPIC 210894022) has been identified as possibly orbited by a transiting planet. Aims: Our aim is to confirm theExpand
Rate and nature of false positives in the CoRoT exoplanet search
Context. The CoRoT satellite searches for planets by applying the transit method, monitoring up to 12 000 stars in the galactic plane for 150 days in each observing run. This search is contaminatedExpand
Multi-object spectroscopy of stars in the CoRoT fields II: The stellar population of the CoRoT fields IRa01, LRa01, LRa02, and LRa06
With now more than 20 exoplanets discovered by CoRoT, it has often been considered strange that so many of them are orbiting F-stars, and so few of them K or M-stars. Although transit search programsExpand
The power of low-resolution spectroscopy: On the spectral classification of planet candidates in the ground-based CoRoT follow-up
Planetary transits detected by the CoRoT mission can be mimicked by a low-mass star in orbit around a giant star. Spectral classification helps to identify the giant stars and also early-type starsExpand
High Angular Resolution Imaging And Infrared Spectroscopy Of CoRoT Candidates
Context. Studies of transiting extrasolar planets are of key importance for understanding the nature of planets outside our solar system because their masses, diameters, and bulk densities can beExpand


Planetary transit candidates in the CoRoT initial run: resolving their nature
With the release of CoRoT lightcurves of the Initial Run IRa01, 50 transiting planetary candidates have been published in a companion paper. About twenty of them were identified as binary stars fromExpand
