Abstract of the colloquium:
Extrasolar planets studies started with the discovery of 51Peg-b by Michel
Mayor and Didier Queloz in 1995, based on observations performed at
Observatoire de Haute Provence, France. As a tenth-anniversary celebration
of this event, eighty astronomers met during a colloquium, the rich
conclusions of which are summarised in this book. The main focuses of
discussions were the nature, origin and evolution of extrasolar planets
orbiting their star in extremely short periods: the so-called "Hot
Jupiters." Most recent observational facts, theoretical advances and
expectations from future observation facilities are included.
