Amusing change of title between revisions in this paper about HAT-P-7b...

v1
v2

guess it was pointed out that the third body may not necessarily be a planet...

Greg Laughlin's put up another article on the systemic blog about the HAT-P-13 system, in particularly highlighting this paper which indicates complications for the determination of the internal structure of the transiting planet if the system is misaligned.

Interestingly enough it seems the observed parameters constrain the mutual inclination: the system is either coplanar (prograde or retrograde), or the mutual inclination between the planetary orbits is around 45-50° or 130-135°.

Hopefully any transit timing variations around the periastron of planet c (or somewhat less likely, an actual transit of planet c) should help give an idea of the degree of coplanarity.

It is worth pointing out that a transit by c would not confirm coplanar orbits, but would certainly constrain it. If c does transit, then we won't know if they are co-planar or not until the Rossiter-McLaughlin effect of both b and c are measured.

It's likely that if both transit, their transit chords across the stellar disk will be in different stellar latitudes, giving us a peak into the differential rotation behavior of HAT-P-13's surface.

HAT-P-14b: A 2MJ EXOPLANET TRANSITING A BRIGHT F STAR †

Draft version March 12, 2010
ABSTRACT
We report the discovery of HAT-P-14b, a fairly massive transiting extrasolar planet orbiting the moderately bright star GSC 3086-00152 (V = 9.98), with a period of P = 4.627669±0.000005d. The transit is close to grazing (impact parameter 0.891+0.007 −0.008) and has a duration of 0.0912±0.0017d, with a reference epoch of mid transit of Tc = 2,454,875.28938±0.00047 (BJD). The orbit is slightly eccentric (e = 0.107±0.013), and the orientation is such that occultations are unlikely to occur. The host star is a slightly evolved mid-F dwarf with a mass of 1.386±0.045M , a radius of 1.468±0.054R , effective temperature 6600±90K, and a slightly metal-rich composition corresponding to [Fe/H] = +0.11±0.08.
The planet has a mass of 2.232±0.059MJ and a radius of 1.150± 0.052RJ, implying a mean density of 1.82 ± 0.24 g cm−3. Its radius is well reproduced by theoretical models for the 1.3Gyr age of the system if the planet has a heavy-element fraction of about 50M (7% of its total mass). The near-grazing orientation and other properties of HAT-P-14 make it a favorable transiting system to look for changes in the orbital elements induced by a possible second planet, and also to place meaningful constraints on the presence of sub-Earth mass or Earth mass exomoons, by monitoring it for transit duration variations.

HAT-P-13c could easily wind up being 2010’s version of HD 80606b — a long-shot transit candidate that pans out to enable extraordinary follow-up characterization, while simultaneously allowing small-telescope ground-based observers to stunt on the transit-hunting space missions.

HAT-P-16b

Post by lodp on 12th May 2010, 8:13 pm

We report the discovery of HAT-P-16b, a transiting extrasolar planet orbiting the V = 10.8 mag F8
dwarf GSC 2792-01700, with a period P = 2.775960±0.000003 d, transit epoch Tc = 2455027.59293± 0.00031 (BJD? ? ?), and transit duration 0.1276±0.0013d. The host star has a mass of 1.22±0.04M ,
radius of 1.24±0.05R , effective temperature 6158±80K, and metallicity [Fe/H] = +0.17±0.08. The
planetary companion has a mass of 4.193 ± 0.094MJ, and radius of 1.289 ± 0.066RJ yielding a mean
density of 2.42±0.35 g cm−3. Comparing these observed characteristics with recent theoretical models,
we find that HAT-P-16b is consistent with a 1 Gyr H/He-dominated gas giant planet. HAT-P-16b
resides in a sparsely populated region of the mass–radius diagram and has a non-zero eccentricity of
e = 0.036 with a significance of 10.http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/arxiv/pdf/1005/1005.2009v1.pdf

I think it is associated with the recent announcement SuperWASP. Surely these two competing groups of found in transit hot Jupiters in the fields HATnet and now trying to publish a discovery before the others.

HAT-P-15 b

Post by Sirius_Alpha on 30th May 2010, 8:11 pm

HAT-P-15b: A 10.9-day Extrasolar Planet Transiting a Solar-type Star
http://arxiv.org/abs/1005.5300

Abstract wrote:We report the discovery of HAT-P-15b, a transiting extrasolar planet in the `period valley', a relatively sparsely-populated period regime of the known extrasolar planets. The host star, GSC 2883-01687, is a G5 dwarf with V=12.16. It has a mass of 1.01+/-0.04 M(Sun), radius of 1.08+/-0.04 R(Sun), effective temperature 5568+/-90 K, and metallicity [Fe/H] = +0.22+/-0.08. The planetary companion orbits the star with a period 10.863502+/-0.000027 days, transit epoch Tc = 2454638.56019+/-0.00048 (BJD), and transit duration 0.2285+/-0.0015 days. It has a mass of 1.946+/-0.066 M(Jup), and radius of 1.072+/-0.043 R(Jup) yielding a mean density of 1.96+/-0.22 g/cm3. At an age of 6.8+/-2.1 Gyr, the planet is H/He-dominated and theoretical models require about 2% (10 M(Earth)) worth of heavy elements to reproduce its measured radius. With an estimated equilibrium temperature of 820 K during transit, and 1000 K at occultation, HAT-P-15b is a potential candidate to study moderately cool planetary atmospheres by transmission and occultation spectroscopy.

HAT-P-18b and HAT-P-19b: Two Low-Density Saturn-Mass Planets Transiting Metal-Rich K Stars

Abstract wrote:We report the discovery of two new transiting extrasolar planets. HAT-P-18b orbits the V=12.759 K2 dwarf star GSC 2594-00646, with a period P=5.508023+-0.000006 d, transit epoch Tc=2454715.02174+-0.00020 (BJD), and transit duration 0.1131+-0.0009 d.

The planetary companion has a mass of 0.292+-0.018 Mjup, and radius of 1.132+-0.072 Rjup yielding a mean density of 0.25+-0.04 g cm-3. The radial velocity residuals for HAT-P-19 exhibit a linear trend in time, which indicates the presence of a third body in the system. Comparing these observations with theoretical models, we find that HAT-P-18b and HAT-P-19b are each consistent with a hydrogen-helium dominated gas giant planet with negligible core mass. HAT-P-18b and HAT-P-19b join HAT-P-12b and WASP-21b in an emerging group of low-density Saturn-mass planets, with negligible inferred core masses. However, unlike HAT-P-12b and WASP-21b, both HAT-P-18b and HAT-P-19b orbit stars with super-solar metallicity. This calls into question the heretofore suggestive correlation between the inferred core mass and host star metallicity for Saturn-mass planets.

HAT-P-24b: An inflated hot-Jupiter on a 3.36d period transiting a hot, metal-poor star
http://arxiv.org/abs/1008.3389

Abstract wrote:We report the discovery of HAT-P-24b, a transiting extrasolar planet orbiting the moderately bright V=11.818 F8 dwarf star GSC 0774-01441, with a period P = 3.3552464 +/- 0.0000071 d, transit epoch Tc = 2455216.97669 +/- 0.00024 (BJD_UTC), and transit duration 3.653 +/- 0.025 hours.

The planetary companion has a mass of 0.681 +/- 0.031 MJ , and radius of 1.243 +/- 0.072 RJ yielding a mean density of 0.439 +/- 0.069 g cm-3 . By repeating our global fits with different parameter sets, we have performed a critical investigation of the fitting techniques used for previous HAT planetary discoveries. We find that the system properties are robust against the choice of priors. The effects of fixed versus fitted limb darkening are also examined. HAT-P-24b probably maintains a small eccentricity of e = 0.052 +0.022 -0.017, which is accepted over the circular orbit model with false alarm probability 5.8%. In the absence of eccentricity pumping, this result suggests HAT-P-24b experiences less tidal dissipation than Jupiter. Due to relatively rapid stellar rotation, we estimate that HAT-P-24b should exhibit one of the largest known Rossiter-McLaughlin effect amplitudes for an exoplanet (deltaVRM ~ 95 m/s) and thus a precise measurement of the sky-projected spin-orbit alignment should be possible.

As rapid progress in the field of transit of planets!

During the first 8 months of 2010 announced a third of all known transit of planets.

Today, the way an interesting report.

http://www.obs-hp.fr/ohp2010/submitted_abstracts-100817.pdf


David Charbonneau (inv)
Institute: Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, Cambridge
Title 2010: The Year We Make (Second) Contact
Abstract:
The landscale surrounding ground-based surveys for transiting exoplanets has changed
dramatically: Eighty transiting exoplanets have been published, dozens more wait in the
wings, and both the Corot and Kepler Missions are regularly making new discoveries. The
time may soon come when the number of transiting planets discovered from space
eclipses that from the ground. I will begin with a review of the recent progress in both
ground-based efforts to discover transiting planets, and efforts from both ground and
space to characterize these systems. I will then motivate investigations that appear ripe
for progress in the coming 5 years, and consider the role of ground-based discovery efforts
during this exciting epoch.

Maybe some other transit planets announce? The title is very loud sounds - "2010: The Year We Make (Second) Contact"
