Abstract

Context. The planetary system WASP-33 is an interesting target because of the discovery of a transiting planet, the misalignment of the stellar rotation axis and the planet orbit, the possible existence of an additional planet in the system, and the presence of δ Scuti pulsations in the hosting star. Its study promises in particular to help us understand the origin and evolution of giant planets orbiting very close to a star. Aims. We analyse high spatial resolution imaging with an adaptive optics system on the WM 10 m-Keck II ...
