EXOTIME: searching for planets and measuring Pdot in sdB pulsators    [PDF]

Ronny Lutz, Sonja Schuh, Roberto Silvotti
We review the status of the EXOTIME project (EXOplanet search with the TIming MEthod). The two main goals of EXOTIME are to search for sub-stellar companions to sdB stars in wide orbits, and to measure the secular variation of the pulsation periods, which are related to the evolutionary change of the stellar structure. Now, after four years of dense monitoring, we start to see some results and present the brown dwarf and exoplanet candidates V1636 Ori b and DW Lyn b.
