Using transit timing observations to search for trojans of transiting extrasolar planets.


Abstract (from CDS):

Theoretical studies predict that Trojans are likely a frequent by-product of planet formation and evolution. We examine the sensitivity of transit timing observations for detecting Trojan companions to transiting extrasolar planets. We demonstrate that this method offers the potential to detect terrestrial-mass Trojans using existing ground-based observatories. We compare the transit timing variation (TTV) method with other techniques for detecting extrasolar Trojans and outline the future prospects for this method.
