P.; Fischer, Debra A.; Kawaler, Steven D.; Kjeldsen, H.; Lund, M. N.; Marcy, Geoffrey W.; Sousa, S. G.; Sozzetti, A.; White, T. R. (2015-02)
      The chemical composition of stars hosting small exoplanets (with radii less than four Earth radii) appears to be more diverse than that of gas-giant hosts, which tend to be metal-rich. This implies that small, including ...
    • Elemental Abundances Of Solar Sibling Candidates 

      Ramirez, Ivan; Bajkova, A. T.; Bobylev, V. V.; Roederer, Ian U.; Lambert, David L.; Endl, Michael; Cochran, William D.; MacQueen, Phillip J.; Wittenmyer, Robert A. (2014-06)
      Dynamical information along with survey data on metallicity and in some cases age have been used recently by some authors to search for candidates of stars that were born in the cluster where the Sun formed. We have acquired ...
    • The Pan-Pacific Planet Search. I. A Giant Planet Orbiting 7 CMa 

      Wittenmyer, Robert A.; Endl, Michael; Wang, Lifan; Johnson, John A.; Tinney, C. G.; O'Toole, S. J. (2011-12)
      We introduce the Pan-Pacific Planet Search, a survey of 170 metal-rich Southern Hemisphere subgiants using the 3.9 m Anglo-Australian Telescope. We report the first discovery from this program, a giant planet orbiting 7 ...
    • Transiting Exoplanets From The Corot Space Mission XIV. CoRoT-11B: A Transiting Massive >Hot-Jupiter> In A Prograde Orbit Around A Rapidly Rotating F-Type Star

      The CoRoT exoplanet science team announces the discovery of CoRoT-11b, a fairly massive hot-Jupiter transiting a V = 12.9 mag F6 dwarf star (M(*) = 1.27 +/- 0.05 M(circle dot), R(*) = 1.37 +/- 0.03 R(circle dot), T(eff) = ...
    • A Vigorous Activity Cycle Mimicking A Planetary System In HD 200466 

      Carolo, E.; Desidera, S.; Gratton, R.; Fiorenzano, A. F. M.; Marzari, F.; Endl, M.; Mesa, D.; Barbieri, M.; Cecconi, M.; Claudi, R. U.; Cosentino, R.; Scuderi, S. (2014-07)
      Stellar activity can be a source of radial velocity (RV) noise and can reproduce periodic RV variations similar to those produced by an exoplanet. We present the vigorous activity cycle in the primary of the visual binary ...
