Abstract

We present seven new transiting hot Jupiters from the WASP-South survey. The planets are all typical hot Jupiters orbiting stars from F4 to K0 with magnitudes of V = 10.312.5. The orbital periods are all in the range of 3.94.6?d, the planetary masses range from 0.4 to 2.3?MJup and the radii from 1.1 to 1.4?RJup. In line with known hot Jupiters, the planetary densities range from Jupiter-like to inflated (? = 0.131.07?Jup). We use the increasing numbers of known hot Jupiters to investigate the distribution of their orbital periods and the 34?d pile-up.
