  • Identifying and analysing protostellar disc fragments in smoothed particle hydrodynamics simulations 

    Hall, Cassandra; Forgan, Duncan; Rice, Ken (2017-09-21) - Journal article
    We present a new method of identifying protostellar disc fragments in a simulation based on density derivatives, and analyse our data using this and the existing CLUMPFIND method,which is based on an ordered search over ...
  • Qatar-2 : a K dwarf orbited by a transiting hot Jupiter and a more massive companion in an outer orbit 

    Bryan, Marta L.; Alsubai, Khalid A.; Latham, David W.; Parley, Neil R.; Cameron, Andrew Collier; Quinn, Samuel N.; Carter, Joshua A.; Fulton, Benjamin J.; Berlind, Perry; Brown, Warren R.; Buchhave, Lars A.; Calkins, Michael L.; Esquerdo, Gilbert A.; Furesz, Gabor; Jorgensen, Uffe Grae; Horne, Keith D.; Stefanik, Robert P.; Street, Rachel A.; Torres, Guillermo; West, Richard G.; Dominik, Martin; Harpsoe, Kennet B. W.; Liebig, Christine; Calchi Novati, Sebastiano; Ricci, Davide; Skottfelt, Jesper F. (2012-05) - Journal article
    We report the discovery and initial characterization of Qatar-2b, a hot Jupiter transiting a V = 13.3 mag K dwarf in a circular orbit with a short period, P b = 1.34 days. The mass and radius of Qatar-2b are M P = 2.49 M ...
  • Searching for transiting extra-solar planets at optical and radio wavelengths 

    Smith, Alexis Michael Sheridan (University of St Andrews, 2009-11-30) - Thesis
    This thesis is concerned with various aspects of the detection and characterisation of transiting extra-solar planets. The noise properties of photometric data from SuperWASP, a wide-field survey instrument designed to ...
  • Transiting hot Jupiters from WASP-South, Euler and TRAPPIST : WASP-95b to WASP-101b 

    Hellier, Coel; Anderson, D. R.; Cameron, A. Collier; Delrez, L.; Gillon, M.; Jehin, E.; Lendl, M.; Maxted, P. F. L.; Pepe, F.; Pollacco, D.; Queloz, D.; Segransan, D.; Smalley, B.; Smith, A. M. S.; Southworth, J.; Triaud, A. H. M. J.; Udry, S.; West, R. G. (2014-05-21) - Journal article
    We report the discovery of the transiting exoplanets WASP-95b, WASP-96b, WASP-97b, WASP-98b, WASP-99b, WASP-100b andWASP-101b. All are hot Jupiters with orbital periods in the range 2.1-5.7 d, masses of 0.5-2.8 MJup and ...
  • A window on exoplanet dynamical histories : Rossiter-McLaughlin observations of WASP-13b and WASP-32b 

    Brothwell, R. D.; Watson, C. A.; Hebrard, G.; Triaud, A. H. M. J.; Cegla, H. M.; Santerne, A.; Hebrard, E.; Anderson, D. R.; Pollacco, D.; Simpson, E.

C.; Bento, J.; Bochinski, J.; Burwitz, V.; Busuttil, R.; Delrez, L.; Doyle, A. P.; Faedi, F.; Fumel, A.; Gillon, M.; Haswell, C. A.; Hellier, C.; Jehin, E.; Kolb, U.; Lendl, M.; Liebig, Christine Elisabeth; Maxted, P. F. L.; McCormac, J.; Miller, Grant; Norton, A. J.; Pepe, F.; Queloz, D.; Rodriguez, J.; Segransan, D.; Skillen, I.; Smalley, B.; Stassun, K. G.; Udry, S.; West, R. G.; Wheatley, P. J. (2014-06-01) - Journal article
    We present Rossiter-McLaughlin observations of WASP-13b and WASP-32b and determine the sky-projected angle between the normal of the planetary orbit and the stellar rotation axis (lambda). WASP-13b and WASP-32b both have ...
