Monitoring Nearby Stars for Transits by Extrasolar Jovial Planets, II: Transits of M-Type (Red) Dwarf Stars by Close Extrasolar Giant (Jovian) Planets
Probabilities are estimated for the occurence and observation of transits of 849 red dwarfs brighter than visual magnitude 12.0 by their close extrasolar giant (70,000 km radii) planets. The special cases of Gliese 876 and the red dwarf eclipsing binaries CM Draconis and YY Geminorum are also discussed.
