Transiting planets with the HAT telescopes and the upcoming HATPI project

I will summarize our close to two-decade effort of detecting and characterizing transiting extrasolar planets with the ground-based HATNet and HATSouth projects. I will show the latest developments in the era of TESS. In the second half of my talk, I will describe the upcoming HATPI project, which project will monitor the entire visible sky at unprecedented photometric precision, cadence and coverage. HATPI will look for transiting planets, transients, and moving objects, and will offer excellent synergies with LSST and TESS.

Followed by wine and cheese in Pupin 1402.
