DWARF: Search for circumbinary planets

Post by Lazarus on 5th July 2012, 2:59 pm

The DWARF project: Eclipsing binaries - precise clocks to discover exoplanets

Project using eclipse timing to try to detect exoplanets. Three types of systems are being targetted: low-mass main sequence binaries, systems containing hot subdwarfs (sdB or sdO), and post-common envelope systems containing white dwarfs.

One of the targets is the somewhat infamous system CM Draconis, and looks like NN Serpentis and HW Virginis are also targets, so hopefully will manage to get some refinements on the properties of these systems.
