The radius of an exoplanet is one of its most important parameters. Studies of planetary interiors and atmospheres need 1–0.1% precision in radius determination. However, the precision of radius is strongly affected by our knowledge of limb darkening. Three key factors have an impact on limb darkening and radius determination: (i) the accuracy of the stellar parameters, (ii) our knowledge on limb darkening, and (iii) stellar activity. Here we review the recent progress in the field, impact of these factors on stellar limb darkening and how it affects the planetary radius determination.
