AbstractBy using six newly determined mid-eclipse times together with those collected from the literature, we have found that the observed minus calculated (O-C) curve of RR Cae shows a cyclic change with a period of 11.9 yr and an amplitude of 14.3 s while it undergoes an upward parabolic variation [revealing a long-term period increase at a rate of. P = +4.18(+/- 0.20) x 10(-12)]. The cyclic change was analysed for the light-travel-time effect that arises from the gravitational influence of a third companion. The mass of the third body was determined to be M(3)sin i' = 4.2(+/- 0.4) M-Jup, suggesting that it is a circumbinary giant planet when its orbital inclination is larger than 17.degrees 6. The orbital separation of the circumbinary planet from the central eclipsing binary is about 5.3(+/- 0.6) au. The period increase is opposite to the changes caused by angular momentum loss via magnetic braking or/and gravitational radiation; and it cannot be explained by the mass transfer between both components because of its detached configuration. These indicate that the observed upward parabolic change is only a part of a long-period (longer than 26.3 yr) cyclic variation, which may reveal the presence of another giant circumbinary planet in a wide orbit.
