We model the asymmetry of the KOI-13.01 transit lightcurve assuming a gravity-darkened rapidly rotating host star in order to constrain the system's spin-orbit alignment and transit parameters. We find that our model can reproduce the Kepler lightcurve for KOI-13.01 with a sky-projected alignment of λ = 23° 4° and with the star's north pole tilted away from the observer by 48° 4° (assuming M * = 2.05 M ⊙). With both these determinations, we calculate that the net misalignment between this planet's orbit normal and its star's rotational pole is 56° ± 4°. Degeneracies in our geometric interpretation also allow a retrograde spin-orbit angle of 124° ± 4°. This is the first spin-orbit measurement to come from gravity darkening and is one of only a few measurements of the full (not just the sky-projected) spin-orbit misalignment of an extrasolar planet. We also measure accurate transit parameters incorporating stellar oblateness and gravity darkening: R * = 1.756 ± 0.014 R⊙, R p = 1.445 ± 0.016 RJup, and i = 859 04. The new lower planetary radius falls within the planetary mass regime for plausible interior models for the transiting body. A simple initial calculation shows that KOI-13.01's circular orbit is apparently inconsistent with the Kozai mechanism having driven its spin-orbit misalignment; planet-planet scattering and stellar spin migration remain viable mechanisms. Future Kepler data will improve the precision of the KOI-13.01 transit lightcurve, allowing more precise determination of transit parameters and the opportunity to use the Photometric Rossiter-McLaughlin effect to resolve the prograde/retrograde orbit determination degeneracy. © 2011.

Exercise is complementary to cancer prevention, care, and survivorship. Exercise is considered safe and effective during and after cancer treatment when conducted under supervision and in controlled environments. Less is known about the safety and effectiveness of unsupervised, home-based exercise programs. Implementing methods of monitoring and reporting can provide more information and potentially enhance exercise effects and program integrity. This paper describes the development of REMEDY, a remote monitoring sensor system consisting of a wireless body-area network (WBAN), cloud database, mobile assisted application, and a set of intelligent algorithms. REMEDY can provide real-time exercise monitoring, participant feedback, and quality assessment that may lead to safer and more effective exercise programs and exercises for cancer patients and survivors. © 2015 IEEE.
