Constraints obtained on the age (in billions years) and radius of CoRoT-16b (radius in Jupiter units). The colored circles correspond to stellar models solutions that match the inferred ρ  -Teff uncertainty ellipse within 1σ (green), 2σ (blue), or 3σ (yellow). The evolution tracks show the contraction of a 0.535 MJup planet with Teq ~ 1200 K, in the so-called “standard approach” (plain lines), and when dissipating 0.25% of the incoming stellar flux, or about 2.6 × 1026 erg s-1 at the center (dashed lines). The line colors correspond to different masses of the planetary rocky core: 0 M (black), 32 M (red), and 64 M (blue).

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.
