Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission - IV. CoRoT-Exo-4b: a transiting planet in a 9.2 day synchronous orbit

Abstract:

CoRoT, the first space-based transit search, provides ultra-high-precision light curves with continuous time-sampling over periods of up to 5 months. This allows the detection of transiting planets with relatively long periods, and the simultaneous study of the host star's photometric variability. In this Letter, we report the discovery of the transiting giant planet CoRoT-Exo-4b and use the CoRoT light curve to perform a detailed analysis of the transit and determine the stellar rotation per...
