Abstract

The four new transit light curves of WASP-12b are analyzed by using MCMC simulation so as to derive the system parameters. If the apsidal precession exists in the orbit of WASP-12b, according to the theory of Gimenez & Bastero (1995), the rate of precession is estimated as 0.0076 degrees per cycle in the case of orbit with an inclination of 90°.
