Complementarity between planet detection methods

Jorge H. C. Martins

Planet detection methods have evolved greatly over the last few years, allowing for the detection of over 1700 planets in over one thousand planetary systems. Nonetheless,individually detection methods are extremely limited and in most cases they do not allow to fully characterize the planetary systems. To access the unavailable parameter spaces we need combine several detection methods, usually spending more time on follow up observations. In this talk, I will make a brief introduction on current planet detection methods. Next, I intend to present a few examples where the combination of planet detection methods allows for a full characterization of the detected systems, not only in terms of directly detectable parameters, but also to infer and constrain information otherwise inaccessible (e.g. composition).
