Characterising exoplanet atmospheres: Bayesian techniques for transit lightcurves

Abstract:

Precise measurements of transit lightcurves can be used to constrain the composition and structure of exoplanet atmospheres. Unfortunately, efforts to extract this information are usually hampered by the presence of correlated noise that is degenerate with the astrophysical signal of interest. A major theme of this thesis is the application of robust analysis methods to properly account for such degeneracies. In particular, I advocate the use of Bayesian inference for lightcurve fitting.
