Giant Planets and Variable Stars in Globular Clusters

Weldrake, David


Over the last decade, 135 extrasolar planets have been discovered, the vast majority found by ongoing radial velocity searches. Of the stars sampled in these searches, 1% have `Hot Jupiter' planets associated with them. Having masses equivalent to Jupiter yet orbital periods of only a few days, this new class of planet is clearly unlike anything in our Solar System. ¶ Hot Jupiters present us with an intriguing prospect. If the orientation of the planetary orbit is close to edge-on, the planet...[Show more]
