The methods and intricacies of modelling the light curve of a single transiting planet have now been covered. This necessary understanding enables the investigation of more complex situations involving three-bodies, rather than two. 

Search for Super Earths by Timing of Transits with CoRoT

We explore the possibility of detecting Super Earths via transit timing variations with the satellite CoRoT .

The Ariel mission will execute an ambitious survey to measure transit and / or secondary eclipse spectra of the atmospheres of about 1000 exoplanets. I outline here some possible scientific

Transit timing variation and activity in the WASP-10 planetary system

Transit timing analysis may be an effective method of discovering additional bodies in extrasolar systems which harbour transiting exoplanets. The deviations from the Keplerian motion, caused by

A TRANSIT TIMING ANALYSIS OF NINE RISE LIGHT CURVES OF THE EXOPLANET SYSTEM TrES-3

We present nine newly observed transits of TrES-3, taken as part of a transit timing program using the RISE instrument on the Liverpool Telescope. A Markov-Chain Monte Carlo analysis was used to

Transit timing variation in exoplanet WASP-3b

Photometric follow-ups of transiting exoplanets may lead to discoveries of additional, less massive bodies in extrasolar systems. This is possible by detecting and then analysing variations in

Timing analysis in microlensing

Timing analysis is a powerful tool used to determine periodic features of physical phenomena. Here we review two applications of timing analysis to gravitational microlensing events. The first one,

A transit timing analysis of seven RISE light curves of the exoplanet system HAT-P-3

We present seven light curves of the exoplanet system HAT-P-3, taken as part of a transit timing programme using the rapid imager to search for exoplanets instrument on the Liverpool Telescope. The

TRANSIT MONITORING IN THE SOUTH (TraMoS) PROJECT: DISCARDING TRANSIT TIMING VARIATIONS IN WASP-5b

We report nine new transit epochs of the extrasolar planet WASP-5b, observed in the Bessell I band with the Southern Astrophysical Research Telescope at the Cerro Pachon Observatory and with the

FIVE NEW TRANSIT EPOCHS OF THE EXOPLANET OGLE-TR-111b

We report five new transit epochs of the extrasolar planet OGLE-TR-111b, observed in the v-HIGH and Bessell I bands with the FORS1 and FORS2 at the ESO Very Large Telescope between 2008 April and

Transit Timing Analysis In The HAT-P-32 System

We present the results of 45 transit observations obtained for the transiting exoplanet HATP-32b. The transits have been observed using several telescopes mainly throughout the YETI (Young Exoplanet

Using Transit Timing Observations to Search for Trojans of Transiting Extrasolar Planets

Theoretical studies predict that Trojans are likely a frequent by-product of planet formation and evolution. We examine the sensitivity of transit timing observations for detecting Trojan companions

Possibility of a photometric detection of exomoons

Aims. We examined which exo-systems contain moons that may be detected in transit. Methods. We numerically modeled transit light curves of Earth-like and giant planets that cointain moons with

Detection of Period Variations in Extrasolar Transiting Planet OGLE-TR-111b

Two consecutive transits of planetary companion OGLE-TR-111b were observed in the I band. Combining these observations with data from the literature, we find that the timing of the transits cannot be

EXOPLANET TRANSIT PARALLAX

The timing and duration of exoplanet transits has a dependency on observer position due to parallax. In the case of an Earth-bound observer with a 2 AU baseline the dependency is typically small and

THE TRANSIT LIGHT CURVE PROJECT. VII. THE NOT-SO-BLOATED EXOPLANET HAT-P-1b

We present photometry of the G0 star HAT-P-1 during six transits of its close-in giant planet, and we refine the estimates of the system parameters. Relative to Jupiter's properties, HAT-P-1b is 1.20

Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission. IV. CoRoT-Exo-4b: a transiting planet in a 9.2 d

CoRoT, the first space-based transit search, provides ultra-high precision light curves with continuous time-sampling over periods, of up to 5 months. This allows the detection of transiting planets

Measurement of the Spin-Orbit Angle of Exoplanet HAT-P-1b

We present new spectroscopic and photometric observations of the HAT-P-1 planetary system. Spectra obtained during three transits exhibit the Rossiter-McLaughlin effect, allowing us to measure the

The Transit Light Curve Project. IX. Evidence for a Smaller Radius of the Exoplanet XO-3b

We present photometry of 13 transits of XO-3b, a massive transiting planet on an eccentric orbit. Previous data led to two inconsistent estimates of the planetary radius. Our data strongly favor the

HD 17156b: A Transiting Planet with a 21.2 Day Period and an Eccentric Orbit

We report the detection of transits by the 3.1MJup companion to the V=8.17 G0V star HD 17156. The transit was observed by three independant observers on Sept. 9/10, 2007 (two in central Italy and one

Detecting companions to extrasolar planets using mutual events

Aims. We investigate a new approach to the detection of companions to extrasolar planets beyond the transit method. We discuss the possibility of the existence of "binary planets". Methods. We
