We report on the results from the radial-velocity follow-up program performed to establish the planetary nature and to characterize the transiting candidates discovered by the space mission CoRoT. We use the SOPHIE at OHP, HARPS at ESO and the HIRES at Keck spectrographs to collect spectra and high-precision radial velocity (RV) measurements for several dozens different can- didates from CoRoT. We have measured the Rossiter-McLaughlin effect of several confirmed planets, especially CoRoT-1b…

Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission. XXVI. CoRoT-24: a transiting multiplanet system
We present the discovery of a candidate multiply transiting system, the first one found in the CoRoT mission. Two transit-like features with periods of 5.11 and 11.76 d are detected in the CoRoT

We report the strategy and results of our radial velocity fol low-up campaign with the SOPHIE spectrograph (1.93-m OHP) of four transiting planetary candidates discovered by the Kepler space mission.
CoRoT 101186644: A transiting low-mass dense M-dwarf on an eccentric 20.7-day period orbit around a late F-star - Discovered in the CoRoT lightcurves
We present the study of the CoRoT transiting planet candidate 101186644, also named LRc01_E1\₄780. Analysis of the CoRoT lightcurve and the HARPS spectroscopic follow-up observations of this faint
Improved parameters of seven Kepler giant companions characterized with SOPHIE and HARPS-N
Radial-velocity observations of Kepler candidates obtained with the SOPHIE and HARPS-N spectrographs have permitted unveiling the nature of the five giant planets Kepler-41b, Kepler-43b, Kepler-44b,
We announce the discovery of a ∼2 Jupiter-mass planet in an eccentric 11 yr orbit around the K7/M0 dwarf GJ 328. Our result is based on 10 years of radial velocity (RV) data from the Hobby–Eberly and
PASTIS: Bayesian extrasolar planet validation II. Constraining exoplanet blend scenarios using spectroscopic diagnoses
The statistical validation of transiting exoplanets proved to be an e cient technique to secure the nature of small exoplanet signals which cannot be established by purely spectroscopic means.
Characterizing the atmosphere of exoplanets using high-resolution spectroscopy
The discovery of planets around other stars is one of the greatest scientific discoveries of the 20th century. Nowadays, exoplanetology is one of the fields in Astronomy that generates most interest,

The false-positive probability (FPP) of Kepler transiting candidates is a key value for statistical studies of candidate properties. A previous investigation of the stellar population in the Kepler
XX. CoRoT-20b: A very high density, high eccentricity transiting giant planet
We report the discovery by the CoRoT space mission of a new giant planet, CoRoT-20b. The planet has a mass of 4.24 +/- 0.23 MJ and a radius of 0.84 +/- 0.04 RJ. With a mean density of 8.87 +/- 1.10

The CoRoT  exoplanet science team announces the discovery of CoRoT-11b, a fairly massive hot-Jupiter transiting a V  = 12.9 mag F6 dwarf star (M ∗  = 1.27 ± 0.05 M ⊙ , R ∗  = 1.37 ± 0.03 R ⊙ , T eff
Reassessing the radial-velocity evidence for planets around CoRoT-7
CoRoT-7 is an 11 th magnitude K-star whose light curve shows transits with depth of 0.3 mmag and a period of 0:854 d, superimposed on variability at the 1% level, due to the modulation of evolving
