A novel method to detect planets in binary systems

Mahmoudreza Oshagh
Institute for Astrophysics, Georg-August-University of Göttingen, Germany

In this talk, first I will present a general review about the methods to detect exoplanets in the binary systems and also about the main discoveries. Then, I will talk about the lack of detection of S-type planet around eclipsing binaries, and will present a novel detection method which uses a correlation between the stellar radial velocities and eclipse timing variations. This technique also allows us to distinguish between prograde and retrograde planetary orbits and also estimate the planetary mass.
