• The California Planet Survey. I. Four New Giant Exoplanets 

      Howard, Andrew W.; Johnson, John A.; Marcy, Geoffrey W.; Fischer, Debra A.; Wright, Jason T.; Bernat, David; Henry, Gregory W.; Peek, Kathryn M. G.; Isaacson, Howard; Apps, Kevin; Endl, Michael; Cochran, William D.; Valenti, Jeff A.; Anderson, Jay; Piskunov, Nikolai E. (2010-10)
      We present precise Doppler measurements of four stars obtained during the past decade at Keck Observatory by the California Planet Survey (CPS). These stars, namely, HD 34445, HD 126614, HD 13931, and Gl 179, all show ...

      We report on the masses, sizes, and orbits of the planets orbiting 22 Kepler stars. There are 49 planet candidates around these stars, including 42 detected through transits and 7 revealed by precise Doppler measurements ...
    • Toward Detection Of Terrestrial Planets In The Habitable Zone Of Our Closest Neighbor: Proxima Centauri 

      Endl, M.; Kurster, M. (2008-09)
      Context. The precision of radial velocity (RV) measurements to detect indirectly planetary companions of nearby stars has improved to enable the discovery of extrasolar planets in the Neptune and Super-Earth mass range. ...
