K2SC: flexible systematics correction and detrending of K2 light curves using Gaussian process regression
We present K2SC (K2 Systematics Correction), a Python pipeline to model instrumental systematics and astrophysical variability in light curves from the K2 mission. K2SC uses Gaussian processExpand
Transiting exoplanet candidates from K2 Campaigns 5 and 6
We introduce a new transit search and vetting pipeline for observations from the K2 mission, and present the candidate transiting planets identified by this pipeline out of the targets in Campaigns 5Expand
Interferometric radii of bright Kepler stars with the CHARA Array: θ Cygni and 16 Cygni A and B
We present the results of long-baseline optical interferom etry observations using the Precision Astronomical Visual Observations (PAVO) beam combiner at the Center for High Angular ResolutionExpand
Low-frequency gravity waves in blue supergiants revealed by high-precision space photometry
Almost all massive stars explode as supernovae and form a black hole or neutron star. The remnant mass and the impact of the chemical yield on subsequent star formation and galactic evolutionExpand
A Low-mass Exoplanet Candidate Detected by K2 Transiting the Praesepe M Dwarf JS 183
We report the discovery of a repeating photometric signal from a low-mass member of the Praesepe open cluster that we interpret as a Neptune-sized transiting planet. The star is JS 183 (HSHJ 163,Expand
Exoplanet transits with next-generation radio telescopes
Nearly everything we know about extrasolar planets to date comes from optical astronomy. While exoplanetary aurorae are predicted to be bright at low radio frequencies (< 1 GHz), we consider theExpand
Coherent radio emission from a quiescent red dwarf indicative of star–planet interaction
Low-frequency ( ν  ≲ 150 MHz) stellar radio emission is expected to originate in the outer corona at heights comparable to and larger than the stellar radius. Such emission from the Sun has been usedExpand
Testing stellar evolution models with the retired A star HD 185351
The physical parameters of the retired A star HD 185351 were analysed in great detail by Johnson et al. (2014) using interferometry, spectroscopy and asteroseismology. Results from all independentExpand
Beyond the Kepler/K2 bright limit: Variability in the seven brightest members of the Pleiades
The most powerful tests of stellar models come from the brightest stars in the sky, for which complementary techniques, such as astrometry, asteroseismology, spectroscopy, and interferometry can beExpand
Asteroseismology of the Hyades red giant and planet host epsilon Tauri
Asteroseismic analysis of solar-like stars allows us to determine physical parameters such as stellar mass, with a higher precision compared to most other methods. Even in a well-studied cluster suchExpand
