HSTEP -- Homogeneous Studies of Transiting Extrasolar Planets

HSTEP -- Homogeneous Studies of Transiting Extrasolar Planets Thumbnail



I give a summary of the HSTEP project: an effort to calculate the physical properties of the known transiting extrasolar planets using a homogeneous approach. I discuss the motivation for the project, list the 83 planets which have already been studied, run through some important aspects of the methodology, and finish with a synopsis of the results. The results have been compiled into an online catalogue: TEPCat.
