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 measurementsExpand
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 prioriExpand
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 firstExpand

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, weExpand
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. Expand
