We present new measurements of the Rossiter–McLaughlin (RM) effect for three Wide Angle Search for transiting Planets (WASP) planetary systems, WASP-16, WASP-25 and WASP-31, from a combined analysis of their complete sets of photometric and spectroscopic data. We find a low-amplitude RM effect for WASP-16 (Teff= 5700 ± 150 K), suggesting that the star is a slow rotator and thus of an advanced age, and obtain a projected alignment angle of . For WASP-25 (Teff= 5750 ± 100 K), we detect a… 
ANALYSIS OF SPIN–ORBIT ALIGNMENT IN THE WASP-32, WASP-38, AND HAT-P-27/WASP-40 SYSTEMS
We present measurements of the spin–orbit alignment angle, λ, for the hot Jupiter systems WASP-32, WASP-38, and HAT-P-27/WASP-40, based on data obtained using the HARPS spectrograph. We analyze the
SPIN–ORBIT ALIGNMENT FOR THREE TRANSITING HOT JUPITERS: WASP-103b, WASP-87b, and WASP-66b
We have measured the sky-projected spin–orbit alignments for three transiting hot Jupiters, WASP-103b, WASP-87b, and WASP-66b, using spectroscopic measurements of the Rossiter–McLaughlin effect, with
Rossiter-McLaughlin models and their effect on estimates of stellar rotation, illustrated using six WASP systems
We present new measurements of the projected spin–orbit angle λ for six WASP hot Jupiters, four of which are new to the literature (WASP-61, -62, -76, and -78), and two of which are new analyses of
High-precision photometry by telescope defocusing - V. WASP-15 and WASP-16
We present new photometric observations of WASP-15 and WASP-16, two transiting extrasolar planetary systems with measured orbital obliquities but without photometric follow-up since their discovery
High-precision photometry by telescope defocussing - VI. WASP-24, WASP-25 and WASP-26
We present time series photometric observations of 13 transits in the planetary systems WASP-24, WASP-25 and WASP-26. All three systems have orbital obliquity measurements, WASP-24 andWASP-26 have
WASP-80b: a gas giant transiting a cool dwarf
We report the discovery of a planet transiting the star WASP-80 (1SWASP J201240.26-020838.2; 2MASS J20124017-0208391; TYC 5165-481-1; BPM 80815; V = 11.9, K = 8.4). Our analysis shows this is a 0.55
LOW STELLAR OBLIQUITIES IN COMPACT MULTIPLANET SYSTEMS
We measure the sky-projected stellar obliquities (λ) in the multiple-transiting planetary systems KOI-94 and Kepler-25, using the Rossiter–McLaughlin effect. In both cases, the host stars are well
Prospects for detecting the Rossiter–McLaughlin effect of Earth-like planets: the test case of TRAPPIST-1b and c
The Rossiter-McLaughlin effect is the principal method of determining the sky-projected spin--orbit angle ($\beta$) of transiting planets. Taking the example of the recently discovered TRAPPIST-1
OBLIQUITIES OF HOT JUPITER HOST STARS: EVIDENCE FOR TIDAL INTERACTIONS AND PRIMORDIAL MISALIGNMENTS
We provide evidence that the obliquities of stars with close-in giant planets were initially nearly random, and that the low obliquities that are often observed are a consequence of star–planet tidal
WASP-94 A and B planets: hot-Jupiter cousins in a twin-star system ?
We report the discovery of two hot-Jupiter planets, each orbiting one of the stars of a wide binary system. WASP-94A (2MASS 20550794‐3408079) is an F8 type star hosting a transiting planet with a

We present observations of the Rossiter-McLaughlin effect for the transiting exoplanet systems WASP-1, WASP-24, WASP-38 and HAT-P-8, and deduce the orientations of the planetary orbits with respect

We report the discovery of a new transiting planet in the southern hemisphere. It was found by the WASP-south transit survey and confirmed photometrically and spectroscopically by the 1.2 m Swiss
TWO UPPER LIMITS ON THE ROSSITER–MCLAUGHLIN EFFECT, WITH DIFFERING IMPLICATIONS: WASP-1 HAS A HIGH OBLIQUITY AND WASP-2 IS INDETERMINATE
We present precise radial-velocity (RV) measurements of WASP-1 and WASP-2 throughout transits of their giant planets. Our goal was to detect the Rossiter–McLaughlin (RM) effect, the anomalous RV
EVIDENCE OF POSSIBLE SPIN–ORBIT MISALIGNMENT ALONG THE LINE OF SIGHT IN TRANSITING EXOPLANET SYSTEMS
Of the 26 transiting exoplanet systems with measurements of the Rossiter–McLaughlin (RM) effect, eight have now been found to be significantly spin–orbit misaligned in the plane of the sky (i.e., RM
WASP-25b: A 0.6M planet in the Southern hemisphere
TLDR
The relationship of planetary radius to planetary equilibrium temperature and host star metallicity for transiting exoplanets with a similar mass to WASP-25b is investigated, finding that these two parameters explain the radii of most low-mass planets well.
ON THE ORBIT OF THE SHORT-PERIOD EXOPLANET WASP-19b
WASP-19b has the shortest orbital period of any known exoplanet, orbiting at only 1.2 times the Roche tidal radius. By observing the Rossiter–McLaughlin effect we show that WASP-19b's orbit is
WASP-14b: 7.3 M transiting planet in an eccentric orbit
TLDR
The discovery of a 7.3 MJ exoplanet WASP-14b, one of the most massive transiting exoplanets observed to date, and the stellar density, effective temperature and rotation rate suggest an age for the system of about 0.5–1.0 Gyr.
EXOPLANETARY SPIN–ORBIT ALIGNMENT: RESULTS FROM THE ENSEMBLE OF ROSSITER–MCLAUGHLIN OBSERVATIONS
One possible diagnostic of planet formation, orbital migration, and tidal evolution is the angle ψ between a planet's orbital axis and the spin axis of its parent star. In general, ψ cannot be
WASP-16b: A NEW JUPITER-LIKE PLANET TRANSITING A SOUTHERN SOLAR ANALOG
TLDR
Comparison of the high resolution stellar spectrum with synthetic spectra and stellar evolution models indicates the host star is a near-solar metallicity of intermediate age and the planet is a new Jupiter-like extrasolar planet.
THE OBLIQUE ORBIT OF THE SUPER-NEPTUNE HAT-P-11b
We find the orbit of the Neptune-sized exoplanet HAT-P-11b to be highly inclined relative to the equatorial plane of its host star. This conclusion is based on spectroscopic observations of two
