We report on the discovery of WASP-37b, a transiting hot Jupiter orbiting an mv = 12.7 G2-type dwarf, with a period of 3.577469 ± 0.000011 d, transit epoch T0 = 2455338.6188 ± 0.0006 (HJD; dates throughout the paper are given in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)), and a transit duration 0.1304+0.0018−0.0017 d. The planetary companion has a mass Mp = 1.80 ± 0.17 MJ and radius Rp = 1.16+0.07−0.06 RJ, yielding a mean density of 1.15+0.12−0.15 ρJ. From a spectral analysis, we find that the host star… 
THE SUB-SATURN MASS TRANSITING PLANET HAT-P-12b
We present new photometric data of the transiting planet HAT-P-12b observed in 2011. Our three transit curves are modeled using the JKTEBOP code and adopting the quadratic limb-darkening law.
A lower mass for the exoplanet WASP‐21b
We present high-precision transit observations of the exoplanet WASP-21b, obtained with the Rapid Imager to Search for Exoplanets instrument mounted on the 2.0-m Liverpool Telescope. A transit model
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
TESS Transit Timing of Hundreds of Hot Jupiters
We provide a database of transit times and updated ephemerides for 382 planets based on data from the NASA Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) and previously reported transit times, which
HAT-P-65b AND HAT-P-66b: TWO TRANSITING INFLATED HOT JUPITERS AND OBSERVATIONAL EVIDENCE FOR THE REINFLATION OF CLOSE-IN GIANT PLANETS
We present the discovery of the transiting exoplanets HAT-P-65b and HAT-P-66b, with orbital periods of and days, masses of and , and inflated radii of and , respectively. They orbit moderately bright
Ephemeris refinement of 21 hot Jupiter exoplanets with high timing uncertainties
Transit events of extrasolar planets offer a wealth of information for planetary characterization. However, for many known targets, the uncertainty of their predicted transit windows prohibits an
On a Possible Solution to the Tidal Realignment Problem for Hot Jupiters
TLDR
The model implies that hot Jupiters orbiting cool stars are probably not in immediate danger of being devoured by their host stars while they are on the main sequence, and a testable prediction of the model is that hot Jupiter hosts with orbital periods shorter than 2–3 days should have obliquities much smaller than 1°.

The ExoClock project is an inclusive, integrated, and interactive platform that was developed to monitor the ephemerides of the Ariel targets to increase the mission efficiency. The project makes the
Discrepancies between isochrone fitting and gyrochronology for exoplanet host stars
Using a sample of 68 planet-hosting stars, I carry out a comparison of isochrone fitting and gyrochronology to investigate whether tidal interactions between the stars and their planets are leading

WASP-19b: THE SHORTEST PERIOD TRANSITING EXOPLANET YET DISCOVERED
We report on the discovery of a new extremely short period transiting extrasolar planet, WASP-19b. The planet has mass Mpl = 1.15 ± 0.08 MJ, radius Rpl = 1.31 ± 0.06 RJ, and orbital period P =
WASP-5b: a dense, very hot Jupiter transiting a 12th-mag Southern-hemisphere star
TLDR
WASP-5b is the densest of any known Jovian-mass planet, being a factor of 7 denser than TrES-4, which is subject to similar stellar insolation, and afactor of 3 densier than WASP-4b, which has a similar orbital period.
WASP-21b: a hot-Saturn exoplanet transiting a thick disc star
We report the discovery of WASP-21b, a new transiting exoplanet discovered by the Wide Angle Search for Planets ( WASP) Consortium and established and characterized with the FIES, SOPHIE, CORALIE and
WASP-3b: a strongly irradiated transiting gas-giant planet
TLDR
The proximity and relative temperature of the host star suggests that WASP-3b is one of the hottest exoplanets known, and thus has the potential to place stringent constraints on exoplanet atmospheric models.
Improved parameters for the transiting hot Jupiters WASP-4b and WASP-5b
The gaseous giant planets WASP-4b and WASP-5b are transiting 12-magnitude solar-type stars in the Southern hemisphere. The aim of the present work is to refine the parameters of these systems using
KEPLER-7b: A TRANSITING PLANET WITH UNUSUALLY LOW DENSITY
We report on the discovery and confirmation of Kepler-7b, a transiting planet with unusually low density. The mass is less than half that of Jupiter, MP = 0.43 MJ, but the radius is 50% larger, RP =
WASP-17b: AN ULTRA-LOW DENSITY PLANET IN A PROBABLE RETROGRADE ORBIT
TLDR
It will be important to determine more precisely the current orbital eccentricity by further high-precision radial velocity measurements or by timing the secondary eclipse, both to reduce the uncertainty on the planet's radius and to test tidal-heating models.
PHOTOMETRIC DETECTION OF A TRANSIT OF HD 80606b
