We present the results of the SuperLupus Survey for transiting hot Jupiter planets, which monitored a single Galactic disk field spanning 0.66 deg{sup 2} for 108 nights over three years. Ten candidates were detected: one is a transiting planet, two remain candidates, and seven have been subsequently identified as false positives. We construct a new image quality metric, S{sub j} , based on the behavior of 26,859 light curves, which allows us to discard poor images in an objective and…

On the Occurrence Rate of Hot Jupiters in Different Stellar Environments
Many hot Jupiters (HJs) are detected by the Doppler and transit techniques. From surveys using these two techniques, however, the measured HJ occurrence rates differ by a factor of two or more. Using
THE FREQUENCY OF HOT JUPITERS ORBITING NEARBY SOLAR-TYPE STARS*
We determine the fraction of F, G, and K dwarfs in the solar neighborhood hosting hot Jupiters as measured by the California Planet Survey from the Lick and Keck planet searches. We find the rate to
HATS-3b: AN INFLATED HOT JUPITER TRANSITING AN F-TYPE STAR*
We report the discovery by the HATSouth survey of HATS-3b, a transiting extrasolar planet orbiting a V=12.4 F dwarf star. HATS-3b has a period of P = 3.5479d, mass of Mp = 1.07MJ, and radius of Rp =
The Metallicity Distribution and Hot Jupiter Rate of the Kepler Field: Hectochelle High-Resolution Spectroscopy for 776 Kepler Target Stars
The occurrence rate of hot Jupiters from the Kepler transit survey is roughly half that of radial velocity surveys targeting solar neighborhood stars. One hypothesis to explain this difference is
SOPHIE velocimetry of Kepler transit candidates XVII. The physical properties of giant exoplanets within 400 days of period
While giant extrasolar planets have been studied for more than two decades now, there are still some open questions such as their dominant formation and migration process, as well as their
A Wide-Field Survey for Transiting Hot Jupiters and Eclipsing Pre-Main-Sequence Binaries in Young Stellar Associations
The past two decades have seen a significant advancement in the detection, classification and understanding of exoplanets and binaries. This is due, in large part, to the increase in use of
Biases in Planet Occurrence Caused by Unresolved Binaries in Transit Surveys
Wide-field surveys for transiting planets, such as the NASA Kepler and TESS missions, are usually conducted without knowing which stars have binary companions. Unresolved and unrecognized binaries
Two New HATNet Hot Jupiters around A Stars and the First Glimpse at the Occurrence Rate of Hot Jupiters from TESS
Wide field surveys for transiting planets are well suited to searching diverse stellar populations, enabling a better understanding of the link between the properties of planets and their parent
KELT-8b: A Highly Inflated Transiting Hot Jupiter and a New Technique for Extracting High-precision Radial Velocities from Noisy Spectra
We announce the discovery of a highly inflated transiting hot Jupiter by the KELT-North survey. A global analysis including constraints from isochrones indicates that the V = 10.8 host star (HD
Transit Search from Antarctica and Chile—Comparison and Combination
Observing sites at the east-Antarctic plateau are considered to provide exceptional conditions for astronomy. The aim of this work is to assess its potential for detecting transiting extrasolar

THE LUPUS TRANSIT SURVEY FOR HOT JUPITERS: RESULTS AND LESSONS
We present the results of a deep, wide-field transit survey targeting Hot Jupiter planets in the Lupus region of the Galactic plane conducted over 53 nights concentrated in two epochs separated by a
Fraction of Stars With Planets in the Open Cluster NGC 1245
We analyze a 19 night photometric search for transiting extrasolar planets in the open cluster NGC 1245. An automated transit search algorithm with quantitative selection criteria finds six transit
An Absence of Hot Jupiter Planets in 47 Tucanae: Results of a Wide-Field Transit Search
This paper presents the results of a comprehensive wide-field search for transiting "hot Jupiter" planets (gas giant planets with an orbital period in the range 1 day ≤ P ≤ 16 days) in the globular
Frequency of Hot Jupiters and Very Hot Jupiters from the OGLE-III Transit Surveys Toward the Galactic Bulge and Carina
We derive the frequencies of hot Jupiters (HJs) with 3--5 day periods and very hot Jupiters (VHJs) with 1-3 day periods by comparing the planets actually detected in the OGLE-III survey with those
A DEEP CATALOG OF VARIABLE STARS IN A 0.66 deg2 LUPUS FIELD
We have conducted a wide-field photometric survey in a single 52' × 52' field towards the Lupus Galactic Plane in an effort to detect transiting Hot Jupiter planets. The data set also led to the
A Lack of Planets in 47 Tucanae from a Hubble Space Telescope Search
We report results from a large Hubble Space Telescope project to observe a significant (~34,000) ensemble of main-sequence stars in the globular cluster 47 Tucanae with a goal of defining the
The effect of red noise on planetary transit detection
Since the discovery of short-period exoplanets a decade ago, photometric surveys have been recognized as a feasible method to detect transiting hot Jupiters. Many transit surveys are now underway,
Deep MMT Transit Survey of the Open Cluster M37 IV: Limit on the Fraction of Stars with Planets as Small as 0.3RJ
We present the results of a deep (15 r 23), 20 night survey for transiting planets in the intermediate-age open cluster M37 (NGC 2099) using the Megacam wide-field mosaic CCD camera on the 6.5 m MMT.
Transiting extrasolar planetary candidates in the Galactic bulge
TLDR
16 candidates with orbital periods between 0.4 and 4.2 days are discovered, constituting a new class of ultra-short-period planets, which occur only around stars of less than 0.88 M[circdot], indicating that those orbiting very close to more-luminous stars might be evaporatively destroyed or that jovian planets aroundStars of lower mass might migrate to smaller radii.
Planet Occurrence within 0.25 AU of Solar-Type Stars from Kepler
We report the distribution of planets as a function of planet radius, orbital period, and stellar effective temperature for orbital periods less than 50 days around solar-type (GK) stars. These
