The bulk composition of giant exoplanets

Mathieu J. M. Havel

Abstract
With over 200 well characterized (known radius and mass) giant exoplanets (> 0.1 Mjup), we've reached the point where statistical studies are possible and needed to uncover the blanks in our understanding of formation and evolution of exoplanets. I will make a pot-pourri presentation, first introducing the modeling of giant exoplanets, then quickly go through a bunch of systems before heading to statistical challenges. This presentation will of course be heavily biased toward getting the bulk composition of these planets, but will hopefully open discussion with you guys on how to improve the approach.
