Product description


'This advanced-level undergraduate text distils the essential physics and methodology of planet discovery and characterisation into a single volume. The book's narrative is cleverly constructed, outlining the progression of exoplanetary discoveries in more-or-less chronological sequence, interspersed with detailed step-by-step presentations of the underlying principles that underpinned each stage in the discovery process. The book treats all these facets of exoplanetary science at a comprehensive level making it an essential reference work for graduate students and more advanced researchers.' Professor Andrew Collier Cameron, University of St Andrews

'I am very impressed by this book's content and presentation. For the first time, all the necessary equations and groundwork in the field are clearly explained within one volume. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to any student or scientist hoping to make a contribution to the exciting field of transiting planets. This book is a must-read for any graduate student starting out in the field, and it will earn its place on the shelves of the experienced specialist as an invaluable reference text.' Dr Frédéric Pont, University of Exeter

'It will occupy prime real estate on the shelves of undergraduate and amateur astronomers working with or acquiring transit data with small and medium-sized telescopes.' Meteoritics & Planetary Sciences

Book Description

The methods used in the detection and characterisation of exoplanets are presented through the study of transiting systems in this unique textbook for advanced undergraduates. Key points and equations are highlighted, and worked examples and exercises with full solutions help students to assess their understanding of concepts and results.
