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.
