<i>Context.</i> In the near-future, exoplanets can be observed directly through telescopes. Although the resolution of the planet's image will only be one pixel at first, the intensity of this pixel will change over time because of the orbit around its host star and its diurnal rotation. This intensity as a function of time is called the light...

In the near future, next-generation telescopes will be able to observe Earth-like exoplanets illuminated by their parent stars for long periods of time. As the distance between exoplanet and observer is enormous, exoplanets will only make up a pixel on our image. However, the observed intensity of this pixel will fluctuate over time as the...

In this thesis, we provide a method for reconstructing a planet's surface map from its reflected light curve. We are going to derive an equation for the reflective light-curve under the assumption that the surface map is characterized by four different surface types (ocean, vegetation, sand and snow), is stationary (no clouds), and that all...

Faculty EWI and TNW. BSc Industrial and Applied Mathematics and Applied Physics. In this thesis we consider reflective light-curves of planets, graphs of the intensity of the light originating from the parent star that the planet reflects versus time. In almost all instances, planets are modelled as spheres, like in [1] and [2]. However, planets...
