We report the discovery by the CoRoT satellite of a new transiting giant planet in a 2.83 days orbit about a V = 15.5 solar analog star (M∗ = 1.08± 0.08 M� , R∗ = 1.1± 0.1 R� , Teff = 5675± 80 K). This new planet, CoRoT-12b, has a mass of 0.92± 0.07 MJup and a radius of 1.44± 0.13 RJup. Its low density can be explained by standard models for irradiated planets. 
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
Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission. XXII. CoRoT-16b: a hot Jupiter with a hint of eccentricity around a faint solar-like star
Aims. We report the discovery of CoRoT-16b, a low density hot jupiter that orbits a faint G5V star (mV  = 15.63) in 5.3523 ± 0.0002 days with slight eccentricity. A fit of the data with no a priori
CoRoT mission highlights
Abstract The CoRoT space telescope is detecting planets with the transit method for more than four years. Its tally includes hot jupiter planets with orbital periods up to 95 days but also the first
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
CoRoT: Harvest of the exoplanet program
Radius Study of Ten Transiting Hot Jupiter Exoplanets with Ground-Based Observations
In this research, 14 light curves of 10 hot Jupiter exoplanets available on Exoplanet Transit Database (ETD) were analyzed. We extracted the transit parameters using EXOFAST software. Finally, we
WASP-50 b: A hot Jupiter transiting a moderately active solar-type star
TLDR
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.
Planetary transit candidates in the CoRoT LRa01 field
Context. The space mission CoRoT is devoted to the analysis of stellar variability and the photometric detection of extrasolar planets. Aims. We present the list of planetary transit candidates
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
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 . VI. CoRoT-Exo-3b: the first secure inhabitant of the brown-dwarf desert
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
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
VLT transit and occultation photometry for the bloated planet CoRoT-1b
We present VLT eclipse photometry for the giant planet CoRoT-1b. We observed a transit in the R-band filter and an occultation in a narrow filter centered on 2.09 μm. Our analysis of this new
WASP-12b: THE HOTTEST TRANSITING EXTRASOLAR PLANET YET DISCOVERED
TLDR
The planet has an equilibrium temperature of T eq = 2516 K caused by its very short period orbit around the hot, twelfth magnitude host star and has the largest radius of any transiting planet yet detected.
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
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
A transiting giant planet with a temperature between 250 K and 430 K
TLDR
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.
TrES-4: A Transiting Hot Jupiter of Very Low Density
We report the discovery of TrES-4, a hot Jupiter that transits the star GSC 02620-00648 every 3.55 days. From high-resolution spectroscopy of the star, we estimate a stellar effective temperature of
