An overview over analysis or modelling tools related to the radial velocity and transit methods for exoplanet detection and characterization is given, with over 40 software tools presented. Tools that cover related subjects, such as physical exoplanet modelling, stellar activity, limb darkening, or stellar parameter estimates, are included as well. All presented tools have been verified to be publicly available, although inoperative software repositories were not uncommon. This issue needs to be addressed, with some of the existing solutions for long-term storage to be considered.

The principal objectives of this project are: 1) to study the structure and dynamics of the solar interior, 2) to extend this study to other stars, 3) to search for extrasolar planets using photometric methods (primarily by transits of their host stars) and their characterization (using radial velocity information) and 4) the study of the planetary
