HOW TO CONSTRAIN YOUR M DWARF: MEASURING EFFECTIVE TEMPERATURE, BOLOMETRIC LUMINOSITY, MASS, AND RADIUS
Precise and accurate parameters for late-type (late K and M) dwarf stars are important for characterization of any orbiting planets, but such determinations have been hampered by these stars' complExpand

Prospecting in late-type dwarfs: a calibration of infrared and visible spectroscopic metallicities of late-K and M dwarfs spanning 1.5 dex
Knowledge of late K and M dwarf metallicities can be used to guide planet searches and constrain planet formation models. However, the determination of metallicities of late-type stars is difficultExpand

AN ALL-SKY CATALOG OF BRIGHT M DWARFS
We present an all-sky catalog of M dwarf stars with apparent infrared magnitude J 40 mas yr{sup -1}, supplemented on the bright end with the Tycho-2 catalog. Completeness tests which account forExpand

Spectro-Thermometry Of M Dwarfs And Their Candidate Planets: Too Hot, Too Cool, Or Just Right?
We use moderate-resolution spectra of nearby late K and M dwarf stars with parallaxes and interferometrically determined radii to refine their effective temperatures, luminosities, and metallicities.Expand

Trumpeting M dwarfs with CONCH-SHELL: a catalogue of nearby cool host-stars for habitable exoplanets and life
We present an all-sky catalog of 2970 nearby (d . 50 pc), bright (J < 9) M- or late Ktype dwarf stars, 86% of which have been confirmed by spectroscopy. This catalog will be useful for searches forExpand

Revised Radii of Kepler Stars and Planets using Gaia Data Release 2
One bottleneck for the exploitation of data from the $Kepler$ mission for stellar astrophysics and exoplanet research has been the lack of precise radii and evolutionary states for most of theExpand

A Spectroscopic Catalog of the Brightest (J<9) M Dwarfs in the Northern Sky
We present a spectroscopic catalog of the 1564 brightest (J 40 mas yr{sup -1}) proper motion limit and high level of completeness of the SUPERBLINK catalog in that magnitude range, we estimate thatExpand

Nearby Young Solar Analogs. I. Catalog and Stellar Characteristics
We present a catalog of 38 young solar analogs within 25 pc, stars that are uniquely well suited for observations of their circumstellar environments to improve our understanding of conditions withinExpand

They are small worlds after all: revised properties of Kepler M dwarf stars and their planets
This research was supported by NASA grants NNX10AQ36G and NNX11AC33G to EG. EG was also supported by an International Visitor grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation.

HYDROGEN GREENHOUSE PLANETS BEYOND THE HABITABLE ZONE
We show that collision-induced absorption allows molecular hydrogen to act as an incondensible greenhouse gas and that bars or tens of bars of primordial H2–He mixtures can maintain surfaceExpand
