Abstract (from CDS):

We report the discovery of HAT-P-15b, a transiting extrasolar planet in the "period valley," a relatively sparsely populated period regime of the known extrasolar planets. The host star, GSC 2883-01687, is a G5 dwarf with V= 12.16. It has a mass of 1.01±0.04 M, radius of 1.08±0.04 R, effective temperature 5568±90 K, and metallicity [Fe/H] = +0.22 ±0.08. The planetary companion orbits the star with a period P = 10.863502 ±0.000027 days, transit epoch Tc= 2454638.56019±0.00048 (BJD), and transit duration 0.2285±0.0015 days. It has a mass of 1.946±0.066 MJ and radius of 1.072±0.043 RJ yielding a mean density of 1.96±0.22 g/cm3. At an age of 6.8+2.5–1.6Gyr, the planet is H/He-dominated and theoretical models require about 2% (10 M) worth of heavy elements to reproduce its measured radius. With an estimated equilibrium temperature of ∼820 K during transit, and ∼1000 K at occultation, HAT-P-15b is a potential candidate to study moderately cool planetary atmospheres by transmission and occultation spectroscopy.
