Abstract (from CDS):

We report new spectroscopic and photometric observations of the parent stars of the recently discovered transiting planets TrES-3 and TrES-4. A detailed abundance analysis based on high-resolution spectra yields [Fe/H] = -0.19±0.08, Teff= 5650±75 K, and log g = 4.4±0.1 for TrES-3, and [Fe/H] = +0.14±0.09, Teff= 6200±75 K, and log g = 4.0±0.1 for TrES-4. The accuracy of the effective temperatures is supported by a number of independent consistency checks. The spectroscopic orbital solution for TrES-3 is improved with our new radial velocity measurements of that system, as are the light-curve parameters for both systems based on newly acquired photometry for TrES-3 and a reanalysis of existing photometry for TrES-4. We have redetermined the stellar parameters taking advantage of the strong constraint provided by the light curves in the form of the normalized separation a/R{*}(related to the stellar density) in conjunction with our new temperatures and metallicities. The masses and radii we derive are M{*}= 0.928+0.028 –0.048M, R{*}= 0.829+0.015–0.022R, and M{*} = 1.404+0.066–0.134M, R{*}= 1.846+0.096–0.087R for TrES-3 and TrES-4, respectively. With these revised stellar parameters, we obtain improved values for the planetary masses and radii. We find Mp = 1.910+0.075–0.080MJup, Rp= 1.336+0.031–0.036RJupfor TrES-3, and Mp= 0.925±0.082 MJup, Rp= 1.783+0.093–0.086R Jup for TrES-4. We confirm TrES-4 as the planet with the largest radius among the currently known transiting hot Jupiters.
