Structure and composition of transiting super-Earths

Wagner, F.W. and Sohl, F. and Rauer, H. (2011) Structure and composition of transiting super-Earths. Plato Science Conference, 2011-02-24 - 2011-02-25, Berlin, Germany.

Full text not available from this repository.


The discovery of rocky exoplanets relies on current detection limits of ground-based observational methods. Structural models of solid exoplanet interiors are constructed by using equations of state for the radial density distribution, which are compliant with the thermodynamics of the high-pressure limit. The modeling results imply that mass-radius relationships are robust and can be used to classify low-mass exoplanets such as CoRoT-7b and Kepler-10b in terms of their bulk compositions.
