Context. The CoRoT  space mission routinely provides high-precision photometric measurements of thousands of stars that have been continuously observed for months. Aims. The discovery and characterization of the first very massive transiting planetary companion with a short orbital period is reported. Methods. A series of 34 transits was detected in the CoRoT  light curve of an F3V star, observed from May to October 2007 for 152 days. The radius was accurately determined and the mass derived… 

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

Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission - X. CoRoT-10b: a giant planet in a 13.24 day eccentric orbit

Context. The space telescope CoRoT searches for transiting extrasolar planets by continuously monitoring the optical flux of thousands of stars in several fields of view. Aims. We report the

Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission - IX. CoRoT-6b: a transiting “hot Jupiter” planet in an 8.9d orbit around a low-metallicity star

The CoRoT satellite exoplanetary team announces its sixth transiting planet in this paper. We describe and discuss the satellite observations as well as the complementary ground-based observations ‐

Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission - XIV. CoRoT-11b: a transiting massive “hot-Jupiter” in a prograde orbit around a rapidly rotating F-type star

The CoRoT  exoplanet science team announces the discovery of CoRoT-11b, a fairly massive hot-Jupiter transiting a V  = 12.9 mag F6 dwarf star (M ∗  = 1.27 ± 0.05 M ⊙ , R ∗  = 1.37 ± 0.03 R ⊙ , T eff

Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission: XV. CoRoT-15b: A brown-dwarf transiting companion

We report the discovery by the CoRoT space mission of a transiting brown dwarf orbiting a F7V star with an orbital period of 3.06 days. CoRoT-15b has a radius of 1.12 +0.30 ―0.15 R Jup and a mass of

Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission

Aims. We report the discovery as well as the orbital and physical characterizations of two new transiting giant exoplanets, CoRoT-30 b and CoRoT-31 b, with the CoRoT space telescope. Methods. We

Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission XXVIII. CoRoT-33b, an object in the brown dwarf desert with 2:3 commensurability with its host star

We report the detection of a rare transiting brown dwarf with a mass of 59 M_Jup and radius of 1.1 R_Jup around the metal-rich, [Fe/H] = +0.44, G9V star CoRoT-33. The orbit is eccentric (e = 0.07)

Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission. XXI. CoRoT-19b: a low density planet orbiting an old inactive F9V-star

Context. Observations of transiting extrasolar planets are of key importance to our understanding of planets because their mass, radius, and mass density can be determined. These measurements
