The N2K Consortium. II. A Transiting Hot Saturn around HD 149026 with a Large Dense Core
Doppler measurements from Subaru and Keck have revealed radial velocity variations in the V = 8.15, G0 IV star HD 149026 consistent with a Saturn-mass planet in a 2.8766 day orbit. Photometric
The N2K consortium. IV. New temperatures and metallicities for more than 100,000 FGK dwarfs
We have created specialized target lists for radial velocity surveys that are biased toward stars that (1) possess planets and (2) are easiest to observe with current detection techniques. We use a
Systemic: A Testbed for Characterizing the Detection of Extrasolar Planets. I. The Systemic Console Package
We present the Systemic Console, a new all-in-one, general-purpose software package for the analysis and combined multiparameter fitting of Doppler radial velocity (RV) and transit timing
Probing the Interiors of Very Hot Jupiters Using Transit Light Curves
Accurately understanding the interior structure of extrasolar planets is critical for inferring their formation and evolution. The internal density distribution of a planet has a direct effect on the
A SYSTEMATIC RETRIEVAL ANALYSIS OF SECONDARY ECLIPSE SPECTRA. I. A COMPARISON OF ATMOSPHERIC RETRIEVAL TECHNIQUES
Exoplanet atmosphere spectroscopy enables us to improve our understanding of exoplanets just as remote sensing in our own solar system has increased our understanding of the solar system bodies. The
A COMPARISON OF OBSERVATIONALLY DETERMINED RADII WITH THEORETICAL RADIUS PREDICTIONS FOR SHORT-PERIOD TRANSITING EXTRASOLAR PLANETS
Two extrasolar planets, HD 209458b and TrES-1, are currently known to transit bright parent stars for which physical properties can be accurately determined. The two transiting planets have very
A Systematic Retrieval Analysis of Secondary Eclipse Spectra. II. A Uniform Analysis of Nine Planets and their C to O Ratios
Secondary eclipse spectroscopy provides invaluable insights into the temperatures and compositions of exoplanetary atmospheres. We carry out a systematic temperature and abundance retrieval analysis
The GJ 876 Planetary System: A Progress Report
We present an updated analysis of the GJ 876 planetary system based on an augmented data set that incorporates 65 new high-precision radial velocities obtained with the Keck Telescope from 2001 to
The thermal equation of state of (Mg, Fe)SiO3 bridgmanite (perovskite) and implications for lower mantle structures
The high‐pressure/high‐temperature equation of state (EOS) of synthetic 13% Fe‐bearing bridgmanite (Mg silicate perovskite) is measured using powder X‐ray diffraction in a laser‐heated diamond anvil
A determination of the spin-orbit alignment of the anomalously dense planet orbiting HD 149026
We report 35 radial velocity measurements of HD 149026 taken with the Keck Telescope. Of these measurements, 15 were made during the transit of the companion planet HD 149026b, which occurred on
