Discovery and characterisation of transiting planets and low mass stars
Transits offer us unique opportunities to study individual systems in great detail. This thesis presents discoveries of new transiting planets and low mass stars, and the characterisation of their fundamental properties: mass, radius, temperature, composition, and orbital dynamics. Ground-based surveys, like HATSouth, are successfully discovering the majority of characterisable transiting planets. The HATSouth survey is the only transit survey that operates a global network of telescopes, with...[Show more]
