Abstract

We show that the inclination of a planetary orbital axis can be determined, on the assumption that it is the same as the inclination of the stellar rotation axis. The latter may be derived from the apparent stellar rotation speed (v sin i) and the rotation period determined from the modulation or strength of Ca II emission.
