A SURVEY OF STELLAR FAMILIES: MULTIPLICITY OF SOLAR-TYPE STARS
We present the results of a comprehensive assessment of companions to solar-type stars. A sample of 454 stars, including the Sun, was selected from the Hipparcos catalog with {pi}>40 mas, {sigma}{subExpand
Kepler Planet-Detection Mission: Introduction and First Results
TLDR
The planetary findings derived from the first six weeks of observations with the Kepler mission are summarized, which include the detection of five new exoplanets, which confirm the existence of planets with densities substantially lower than those predicted for gas giant planets. Expand
The Keck Planet Search: Detectability and the Minimum Mass and Orbital Period Distribution of Extrasolar Planets
ABSTRACT. We analyze 8 years of precise radial velocity measurements from the Keck Planet Search, characterizing the detection threshold, selection effects, and completeness of the survey. We firstExpand
Catalog of nearby exoplanets
We present a catalog of nearby exoplanets. It contains the 172 known low-mass companions with orbits established through radial velocity and transit measurements around stars within 200 pc. WeExpand
Multiplicity among M Dwarfs
We examine surveys of M dwarfs within 20 pc to determine the incidence of stellar companions. Observational data are drawn from high-quality surveys, including IR-array imaging, precise velocities,Expand
THE MASS-RADIUS RELATION FOR 65 EXOPLANETS SMALLER THAN 4 EARTH RADII
We study the masses and radii of 65 exoplanets smaller than 4 R ⊕ with orbital periods shorter than 100 days. We calculate the weighted mean densities of planets in bins of 0.5 R ⊕ and identify aExpand
Architecture and Dynamics of Kepler's Candidate Multiple Transiting Planet Systems
About one-third of the ~1200 transiting planet candidates detected in the first four months of Kepler data are members of multiple candidate systems. There are 115 target stars with two candidateExpand
Chromospheric Ca II Emission in Nearby F, G, K, and M Stars*
We present chromospheric Ca II H and K activity measurements, rotation periods, and ages for ~1200 F, G, K, and M type main-sequence stars from ~18,000 archival spectra taken at Keck and LickExpand
The California-Kepler Survey. III. A Gap in the Radius Distribution of Small Planets*
The size of a planet is an observable property directly connected to the physics of its formation and evolution. We used precise radius measurements from the California-Kepler Survey to study theExpand
Radial Velocities for 889 Late-Type Stars*
We report radial velocities for 844 FGKM-type main-sequence and subgiant stars and 45 K giants, most of which had either low-precision velocity measurements or none at all. These velocities differExpand
