<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...

This thesis develops a method to map the surface of an exoplanet. The problem of exoplanet mapping sounds easy to solve. Take a few photographs of an exoplanet and sew them together to create a map of the surface. The telescope required to do this is far beyond our technological capabilities. However, our current telescopes could allow us to...

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...
