Observing extrasolar planets with COROT and high contrast imaging
Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur, France;
2 Université de Nice-Sophia Antipolis, France;
We discuss the properties of extrasolar planets inferred from observations and theoretical models. We show that COROT should be able to usefully constrain the albedos of extrasolar planets with short orbital periods, given levels of stellar variability close to that of the Sun. We sketch possible strategies for observational astrophysical programs using high contrast imaging.
