    Of course, you can find many other sources for this news. Here are the abstracts of the two peer-reviewed scientific articles that actually describe these discoveries: " A super-Earth-sized planet orbiting in or near the habitable zone around a Sun-like star ," Barclay et al. Please read the abstracts, although you don't have to read the papers though feel free! Week 12 Mon. But if you'd like to do a little preparation for Philip and Kelley's presentations, here's a short paper on tidal circularization that Philip recommends and one on habitable zones that Kelley recommends. That second one is longer Week 11 Mon.

    And relatedly, questions that you have about the second half of the paper are probably things we should be talking about as a group, in class. The linked document is identical to the email sent out on Sunday afternoon.

    You should post your question about the Beatty et al.

    The book is also available on the reserve shelf at Cornell, behind the front desk. The main reading for next week class on Tuesday, Feb 5 , is the recent paper on the newly discovered using data from our Peter van de Kamp Observatory, among others transiting exoplanet, KELT2Ab.

    I gave out hardcopy of the paper at the end of class this week. If you need a new copy or prefer an electronic copy, you can get one via ADS which links directly to the Astrophysical Journal's website.

    A few days before class, I will ask you to post questions about the paper. The paper is relatively short but, as with all scientific papers, it is dense. You will need to read it more than once.

    And without knowing all the jargon and the context, it will be impossible to understand every aspect of it.

    To help you get started, I've annotated just the first page so far. Have a look , and let me know if you have any questions. By all means, if you see a term you don't understand, look it up. And to get some context and see some images Eric Jensen made that demonstrate the relative size and resolution of the KELT discovery images and our follow-up images , have a look at this article on the College's website.

    Week 2 The reading for class the second week, is some basic review of Kepler's laws and Newton's laws of motion, gravity, and orbits. This very well may be new to you or some or even all of it may be familiar but perhaps you still could benefit from some review. Take a look at Kepler's Laws on p. And also read or skim Ch.

    The bit about tides at the end of the chapter is also interesting, and relevant to exoplanet studies. But the most important thing in Ch. A pdf of the above, optional reading is available. Note that the book is also available on the reserve shelf -- behind the front desk; you have to ask for it -- in Cornell.

    It is being shared by Astro 1, so you might have to ask the librarian to look for it there. There is no written assignment for Tuesday's class. The book is on reserve at Cornell. I'm also posting here the five pages in question pp. If you read the book in person, you may be tempted to read the next few pages, which are also good.

    The Fundamentals of Stellar Astrophysics

    The first couple of pages in the short reading above are about extracting exoplanet masses from radial velocity curves of their host stars, based on Kepler's third law. In the Cosmic Perspective background reading I recommended, Newton's version of Kepler's third law was stated on p. It is the starting point for weighing planets and stars. It is eqn.

    This version of Kepler's third law is exact. To prepare for class, derive this simplified version of Kepler's third law by equating the centripetal acceleration of an exoplanet in a circular orbit to the acceleration due to gravity between it and its host star. You can look up centripetal force or acceleration in wikipedia if you feel a need to review its derivation or just be reminded of the formula which is most usefully expressed in terms of the circular speed, v, and the distance from the center of motion, which we can equate to, a, the star-exoplanet distance.

    This is all well and good if you want to do something like weigh the Sun given the Earth's orbital period and semi-major axis.

    But to weigh the lighter object e. Pages show how the exoplanet mass is derived from observable quantities. Week 1 Each week there will be a modest amount of reading, and usually one or two problems to solve or questions to answer about the week's topic.

    You can check your reasoning as you tackle a problem using our interactive solutions viewer. Plus, we regularly update and improve textbook solutions based on student ratings and feedback, so you can be sure you're getting the latest information available. How is Chegg Study better than a printed Foundations of Astrophysics student solution manual from the bookstore?

    Our interactive player makes it easy to find solutions to Foundations of Astrophysics problems you're working on - just go to the chapter for your book. Hit a particularly tricky question? Bookmark it to easily review again before an exam. The best part? The linked document is identical to the email sent out on Sunday afternoon.

    Students will be expected to do work ahead of class, much like a seminar, and come to class ready to share their solutions.
