Table 3

Prototypes of planets chosen to represent the planet transits.

Planet Mass Radiusa Equilibrium temperature Semi-major inc b Transit duration

Sun/K dwarf

Terrestrial planet 0.006 0.219/0.173 400 0.2504 90 ~7
Hot Neptune 0.360 0.654/0.510 1540 0.0431 90 ~2
Hot Jupiter 7.570 1.090/0.850 1952 0.0269 90 ~3



Rp is different for the RHD simulation of the Sun and of the K dwarf, to keep the same ratio Rp/R for the transits. Moreover, the radius of the terrestrial planet is larger than Earth’s radius.


The inclination orbit (inc) has been arbitrarily chosen to be equal to 90° to have a planet crossing at the center of the star.
