SOAP-transit: tool to measure spin-orbit misalignment of exoplanets

Mahmoudreza Oshagh

We present a new software code that simulates the radial velocity and photometry signal observed for a system consisting of a spotted star with a transiting planet. Tests to the code are presented to illustrate its performances and to validate the suitability of the code when compared with analytical methods and to real data. This software can be used to study the anomalies inside the transit light curve and the Rossiter-McLaughlin effect, and to better constrain the configuration and properties of the planetary system.
