Searching for hot Jupiter transits around cool stars
Searching for hot Jupiter transits around cool stars
In this thesis, I describe the search for transiting hot Jupiters with a focus on cool dwarfs, low-mass main-sequence stars. I detail the results of our Pan-Planets survey and the necessary follow-up and show a discovered planet in the Beehive cluster M44, a transiting hot Neptune around an M dwarf. Finally, I evaluate our results in the context of planet occurrence rate and demonstrate that we set more precise limits for hot Jupiters in M dwarf systems than other projects before us., Deutsche Übersetzung des Titels: Die Suche nach heißen Jupiter-Transits um kühle Sterne

Abstract

In this thesis, I describe the search for transiting hot Jupiters with a focus on cool dwarfs, low-mass main-sequence stars. I detail the results of our Pan-Planets survey and the necessary follow-up and show a discovered planet in the Beehive cluster M44, a transiting hot Neptune around an M dwarf. Finally, I evaluate our results in the context of planet occurrence rate and demonstrate that we set more precise limits for hot Jupiters in M dwarf systems than other projects before us.
