Abstract (from CDS):

We report the discovery of a transiting planet orbiting the star TYC 2-1155-1. The star, WASP-32, is a moderately bright solar-type star (, ). The light curve of the star obtained with the WASP-South and WASP-North instruments shows periodic transitlike features with a depth of about 1% and a duration of 0.10 day every 2.72 days. The presence of a transitlike feature in the light curve is confirmed using -band photometry obtained with Faulkes Telescope North. High-resolution spectroscopy obtained with the Coralie spectrograph confirms the presence of a planetary mass companion. From a combined analysis of the spectroscopic and photometric data, assuming that the star is a typical main-sequence star, we estimate that the planet has a mass of and a radius . WASP-32 is one of a small group of hot Jupiters with masses greater than . We find that some stars with hot Jupiter companions and with masses, including WASP-32, are depleted in lithium and that the majority of these stars have lithium abundances similar to field stars.
