Early hot Jupiter discovery rate expectations

Post by Sirius_Alpha on 9th April 2013, 4:19 pm

A couple times that I remember over the past couple years, someone (who?) asked about where a reference was for predictions for hot Jupiter detection rates being about ~200 planets per month, which turned out to be grosely optimistic.

The paper in question is this one. SuperWASP is projected at finding 15 planets per month. Most of the programmes listed do not seem to have come to fruition or have yielded results.

Here's the list with what looks like updated numbers.
Code:

(the www in the name seems to make the link weird)

I post this thread as partly a historical note and because I know someone on this forum was looking for this paper.
