Our group is developing TRADES (TRAnsits and Dynamics of Exoplanetary Systems), a FORTRAN code (parallelized with openMP) that simulates an N-body system in order to analyze the dynamics of an exoplanetary system.It is possible to characterize a planetary system combining the results of different techniques, such as radial velocities (RV), transit times (

During the orbital integration, TRADES calculates the

TRADES calculates the parameter errors from the LM as the square root of the diagonal elements of the covariance matrix and it can calculate the confidence intervals of the parameters with a bootstrap analysis.

This tool is ready to fit, also, the duration of the transits in order to put more constraints on the orbital parameters. Furthermore, we are planning to implement a Bayesian algorithm, such as a Monte-Carlo-Markov-Chain (MCMC), and to add a tool for the analysis of the dynamical stability of the orbtital solution.
