We announce the discovery of the transiting planet CoRoT-13b. Ground-based follow-up in CFHT and IAC80 confirmed CoRoT’s observations. The mass of the planet was measured with the HARPS spectrograph and the properties of the host star were obtained analyzing HIRES spectra from the Keck telescope. It is a hot Jupiter-like planet with an orbital period of 4.04 days, 1.3 Jupiter masses, 0.9 Jupiter radii, and a density of 2.34 g cm −3 . It orbits a G0V star with Teff = 5 945 K, M∗ = 1.09 M� , R… 
Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission. XXIII. CoRoT-21b: a doomed large Jupiter around a faint subgiant star
CoRoT-21, a F8IV star of magnitude V = 16 mag, was observed by the space telescope CoRoT during the Long Run 01 (LRa01) in the first winter field (constellation Monoceros) from October 2007 to March
Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission - XXIV. CoRoT-25b and CoRoT-26b: two low-density giant planets
We report the discovery of two transiting exoplanets, CoRoT-25b and CoRoT-26b, both of low density, one of which is in the Saturn mass-regime. For each star, ground-based complementary observations
We report the discovery by the HATSouth survey of HATS-4b, an extrasolar planet transiting a V = 13.46 mag G star. HATS-4b has a period of P ≈ 2.5167 days, mass of Mp ≈ 1.32 MJup, radius of Rp ≈ 1.02
CoRoT : a first space-based transiting survey to explore the close-in planets populations
The CoRoT (COnvection, internal ROtation and Transiting planets) space mission was launched in the last days of 2006, becoming the first major space mission dedicated to the search for and study of
CoRoT: The first space-based transit survey to explore the close-in planet population
The CoRoT (COnvection, internal ROtation and Transiting planets) space mission was launched in the last days of 2006, becoming the first major space mission dedicated to the search for and study of
Gas giant planets orbiting within 0.1 AU of their host stars are unlikely to have formed in situ and are evidence for planetary migration. It is debated whether the typical hot Jupiter smoothly
Multi-object spectroscopy of stars in the CoRoT fields II: The stellar population of the CoRoT fields IRa01, LRa01, LRa02, and LRa06
With now more than 20 exoplanets discovered by CoRoT, it has often been considered strange that so many of them are orbiting F-stars, and so few of them K or M-stars. Although transit search programs
WASP-50 b: A hot Jupiter transiting a moderately active solar-type star
Due to its large irradiation and the relatively small size of its host star, WASP-50 b is a good target for occultation spectrophotometry, making it able to constrain the relationship between hot Jupiters' atmospheric thermal profiles and the chromospheric activity of their host stars.
Homogeneous studies of transiting extrasolar planets – IV. Thirty systems with space-based light curves
I calculate the physical properties of 32 transiting extrasolar planet and brown-dwarf systems from existing photometric observations and measured spectroscopic parameters. The systems studied
Orbital Period Refinement of CoRoT Planets with TESS Observations
CoRoT was the first space mission dedicated to exoplanet detection. Operational between 2007 and 2012, this mission discovered 37 transiting planets, including CoRoT-7b, the first terrestrial


Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission - XI. CoRoT-8b: a hot and dense sub-Saturn around a K1 dwarf
Aims. We report the discovery of CoRoT-8b, a dense small Saturn-class exoplanet that orbits a K1 dwarf in 6.2 days, and we derive its orbital parameters, mass, and radius. Methods. We analyzed two
Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission VIII. CoRoT-7b: the first Super-Earth with measured radius
Aims. We report the discovery of very shallow (ΔF/F ≈ 3.4× 10 −4 ), periodic dips in the light curve of an active V = 11.7 G9V star observed by the CoRoT satellite, which we interpret as caused by a
The N2K Consortium. II. A Transiting Hot Saturn around HD 149026 with a Large Dense Core
Doppler measurements from Subaru and Keck have revealed radial velocity variations in the V = 8.15, G0 IV star HD 149026 consistent with a Saturn-mass planet in a 2.8766 day orbit. Photometric
Improved stellar parameters of CoRoT-7 A star hosting two super Earths
Context. Accurate parameters of the host stars of exoplanets are needed for interpreting the new planetary systems. The CoRoT satellite recently discovered a transiting rocky planet with a density
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
Photospheric activity and rotation of the planet-hosting star CoRoT-4a
Aims. The space experiment CoRoT has recently detected a transiting hot Jupiter in orbit around a moderately active F-type main-sequence star (CoRoT-4a). This planetary system is of particular
Photometry is presented of the 2007 December 25 transit of HD 17156b, which has the longest orbital period and highest orbital eccentricity of all the known transiting exoplanets. New measurements of

Transit observations of CoRoT-9b, the largest of all transiting planets, are reported, which is found to be well described by standard evolution models with an inferred interior composition consistent with that of Jupiter and Saturn.
The changing phases of extrasolar planet CoRoT-1b
Optical photometric data obtained over 36 planetary orbits of the transiting hot Jupiter CoRoT-1b are consistent with the nightside hemisphere of the planet being entirely black, with the dayside flux dominating the optical phase curve.
