We report the discovery, from WASP and CORALIE, of a transiting exoplanet in a 1.54 day orbit. The host star, WASP-36, is a magnitude V = 12.7, metal-poor G2 dwarf ( K), with [Fe/H] =−0.26 ± 0.10. We determine the planet to have mass and radius, respectively, 2.30 ± 0.07 and 1.28 ± 0.03 times that of Jupiter. We have eight partial or complete transit light curves, from four different observatories, which allow us to investigate the potential effects on the fitted system parameters of using only…

Transiting Exoplanet Monitoring Project (TEMP). VI. The Homogeneous Refinement of System Parameters for 39 Transiting Hot Jupiters with 127 New Light Curves
We present 127 new transit light curves for 39 hot Jupiter systems, obtained over the span of 5 yr by two ground-based telescopes. A homogeneous analysis of these newly collected light curves
WASP-South hot Jupiters: WASP-178b, WASP-184b, WASP-185b, and WASP-192b
We report on four new transiting hot Jupiters discovered by the WASP-South survey. WASP-178b transits a V = 9.9, A1V star with Teff = 9350 ± 150 K, the second-hottest transit host known. It has a
THE MASS OF KOI-94d AND A RELATION FOR PLANET RADIUS, MASS, AND INCIDENT FLUX
We measure the mass of a modestly irradiated giant planet, KOI-94d. We wish to determine whether this planet, which is in a 22 day orbit and receives 2700 times as much incident flux as Jupiter, is
Refined System Ephemeris for Four Transiting Hot Jupiters using Ground-Based and TESS Observations
Transit Timing Variation (TTV) is a powerful method to study the dynamics of multiple transiting planetary systems. We examined the TTV of four planetary systems: WASP-12b, WASP-33b, WASP-36b, and
