Aims. We report the discovery of a massive and dense transiting planet CoRoT-27b on a 3.58 day orbit around a 4.2 Gyr-old G2 star. The planet candidate was identified from the CoRoT photometry, and was confirmed as a planet with ground-based spectroscopy. Methods. The confirmation of the planet candidate is based on radial velocity observations combined with imaging to rule out blends. The characterisation of the planet and its host star is carried out using a Bayesian approach where all the… Expand
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)Expand
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 ofExpand

Kepler-423b: a half-Jupiter mass planet transiting a very old solar-like star
We report the spectroscopic confirmation of the Kepler object of interest KOI-183.01 (Kepler-423b), a half-Jupiter mass planet transiting an old solar-like star every 2.7 days. Our analysis is theExpand
SOPHIE velocimetry of Kepler transit candidates XIII. KOI-189 b and KOI-686 b: two very low-mass stars in long-period orbits
We present the radial-velocity follow-up of two Kepler planetary transiting candidates (KOI-189 and KOI-686) carried out with the SOPHIE spectrograph at the Observatoire de Haute Provence. These dataExpand
The SOPHIE search for northern extrasolar planets - IX. Populating the brown dwarf desert
Radial velocity planet search surveys of nearby solar-type stars have shown a strong scarcity of brown dwarf companions within similar to 5 AU. There is presently no comprehensive explanation forExpand
HATS-70b: A 13 MJ Brown Dwarf Transiting an A Star
We report the discovery of HATS-70b, a transiting brown dwarf at the deuterium burning limit. HATS-70b has a mass of Mp = 12.9+1.8-1.6 MJup and a radius of Rp 1.384+ 0.074 0.079 MJup, residing in aExpand
Stellar Obliquity and Magnetic Activity of Planet-hosting Stars and Eclipsing Binaries Based on Transit Chord Correlation
The light curve of an eclipsing system shows anomalies whenever the eclipsing body passes in front of active regions on the eclipsed star. In some cases, the pattern of anomalies can be used toExpand
The Distribution of Giant Exoplanets over True and Projective Masses: Accounting for Observational Selection
To build the mass distribution of exoplanets discovered with the method of measuring the radial velocities, it is necessary to take into consideration the observational selection factors. We proposeExpand

We report the discovery of three moderately high-mass transiting hot Jupiters from the HATSouth survey: HATS-22b, HATS-23b and HATS-24b. These planets add to the number of known planets in theExpand


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 MarchExpand
Structure and evolution of the first CoRoT exoplanets: probing the brown dwarf/planet overlapping mass regime

Kepler-14b: A Massive Hot Jupiter Transiting an F Star in a Close Visual Binary
We present the discovery of a hot Jupiter transiting an F star in a close visual (03 sky projected angular separation) binary system. The dilution of the host star's light by the nearly equalExpand
Noise properties of the CoRoT ? data A planet-finding perspective

An analysis of the CoRoT-2 system: A young spotted star and its inflated giant planet
Context: CoRoT-2b is one of the most anomalously large exoplanet known. Given its large mass, its large radius cannot be explained by standard evolution models. Interestingly, the planet's parentExpand
Ground-based photometry of space-based transit detections: photometric follow-up of the CoRoT mission
The motivation, techniques and performance of the ground-based photometric follow-up of transit detections by the CoRoT space mission are presented. Its principal raison d’etre arises from the muchExpand
An orbital period of 0.94 days for the hot-Jupiter planet WASP-18b
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. Expand
