Motivated by the identification of the very close-in extrasolar giant planet OGLE-TR-56b (P = 1.2 days, a = 0.023 AU, Mp = 0.9MJ), we explore implications of its existence for problems of tidal dissipation, planet migration, and atmospheric stability. The small orbit of OGLE-TR-56b makes the planet an interesting test particle case for tidal dissipation in stellar convection zones. We show that it favors prescriptions of suppressed convective eddy viscosity. Precise timing of the transits of…

A Transiting Extrasolar Giant Planet around the Star OGLE-TR-10
We report a transiting extrasolar giant planet around the star OGLE-TR-10 (orbital period = 3.1 days), which was uncovered as a candidate by the OGLE team in their photometric survey toward the
Constraints on the tidal dissipation factor of a main sequence star: The case of OGLE-TR-56b
Tidal interactions of close-in extrasolar planets: The OGLE cases
Close-in extrasolar planets experience extreme tidal interactions with their host stars. This may lead to a reduction of the planetary radius and a spin-up of stellar rotation. Tidal interactions
An orbital period of 0.94 days for the hot-Jupiter planet WASP-18b
TLDR
Either WASP-18 is in a rare, exceptionally short-lived state, or the tidal dissipation in this system (and possibly other hot-Jupiter systems) must be much weaker than in the Solar System.
THEORETICAL RADII OF TRANSITING GIANT PLANETS: THE CASE OF OGLE-TR-56b
We calculate radius versus age trajectories for the photometrically selected transiting extrasolar giant planet, OGLE-TR-56b, and find agreement between theory and observation, without introducing an
New data and improved parameters for the extrasolar transiting planet OGLE-TR-56b
We report new spectroscopic observations with the Keck HIRES instrument of the recently discovered transiting planet OGLE-TR-56b. Our radial velocity measurements with errors of ~100 m s-1 show clear
The Evolution of Irradiated Planets: Application to Transits
Extending the theory that we derived recently for HD 209458b to different cases of strongly irradiated gaseous exoplanets, we have calculated the consistent evolution of a new transiting planet,
Testing Blend Scenarios for Extrasolar Transiting Planet Candidates. II. OGLE-TR-56
We reexamine the photometric and spectroscopic evidence available for the star OGLE-TR-56, recently discovered to harbor a giant planet presenting transits and orbiting with a period of 1.21 days. We
Six High-precision Transits of OGLE-TR-113b
We present six new transits of the hot Jupiter OGLE-TR-113b observed with MagIC on the Magellan Telescopes between 2007 January and 2009 May. We update the system parameters and revise the planetary
WASP-12b as a prolate, inflated and disrupting planet from tidal dissipation
TLDR
An analysis of the recently discovered transiting planet WASP-12b reveals that the planet is losing mass to its host star at a rate of about 10-7MJ per year, and concludes that dissipation of the star's tidal perturbation in the planet’s convective envelope provides the energy source for its large volume.

Hd 209458: physical parameters of the parent star and the transiting planet
The Sun-like star HD 209458 harbors a close-in giant planet that transits across the star's disk, and thus allows an unprecedented access to the basic parameters of the planet, given a certain
An extrasolar planet that transits the disk of its parent star
Planets orbiting other stars could in principle be found through the periodic dimming of starlight as a planet moves across—or ‘transits’—the line of sight between the observer and the star.
