The first decade of exoplanetary discoveries was heavily dominated by only two methods of detection: pulsar timing and radial velocity searches. However, in recent years we started finding exoplanets using additional techniques, such as transits, microlensing, direct imaging, timing of pulsating white dwarfs, etc. The value of multiple methods is in the possibility of disentangling various biases inherent for each of them and in their complimentarity, with different techniques probing planetary system arcitectures and formation routes over different parameter regimes. The goal of this session is to provide a venue for comparative discussion of various detection techniques, for learning from each other about combining different data sets, as well as presenting new observational results.
(Note that session EO7 is devoted to results from CoRoT and Kepler.)
