New Book on Transiting Planets

Post by exoplanet on 2nd September 2010, 11:00 am

Hi,

does anyone have an opinion about the recent book:

Transiting Exoplanets by Carole A. Haswell

I was thinking of buying it but given the cost I would like to have some review or feedback on it.

Cheers

Looks like the author has worked with SuperWASP and RoPACS. With the rate at which the field is evolving, it may not be entirely up-to-date.

I haven't read it so I can't offer much else. Neutral

Yes, I saw that page too Wink
It is actually nice that the book is from someone who is actively "in the business".

BTW, early next year we will have also some potentially interesting books from Sara Seager.

I bought the book. It is very well written. Very thorough and yet very readable. It has many exercises throughout. I recommend it highly.
