Abstract: A unique analytical solution of planet and star parameters can be derived from an extrasolar planet transit light curve under a number of assumptions. This analytical solution can be used to choose the best planet transit candidates for radial velocity follow-up measurements. In practice, high photometric precision (<0.005 mag) and high time sampling (< 5 minutes) are needed for this method. See Seager and Mallén-Ornelas (2003) for full details.
