Transit timing variatons caused by a hypothetical P2 = 10   000 day-period m3 = 1   M mass, moderately eccentric e2 = 0.3 third companion for CoRoT-9b, at different initial orbital elements for four different initial inner eccentricities (e1 = 0, 0.11, 0.5, 0.9). The various initial elements of each panel are as follows. Panel a): g1 = 7°, g2 = 90°, im = 0°; b): the same, but for im = 90°; c): g1 = 7°, g2 = 45°, im = 30°; d): g1 = 337°, g2 = 45°, im = 60°; e): g1 = 307°, g2 = 45°, im = 30°; f): same as previous, but for im = 90°; g): g1 = 277°, g2 = 45°, im = 0°; h): same as previous, but for im = 90°. (For better comparison the curves are corrected for the different average transit periods, and zero point shifts.)
