On the Use of Empirical Bolometric Corrections for Stars
When making use of tabulations of empirical bolometric corrections for stars (BC V ), a commonly overlooked fact is that while the zero point is arbitrary, the bolometric magnitude of the Sun (MExpand

HD 80606 b, a planet on an extremely elongated orbit ?
We report the detection of a planetary companion orbiting the solar-type star HD 80606, the brighter component of a wide binary with a projected separation of about 2000 AU. Using high-signalExpand

TrES-1: The Transiting Planet of a Bright K0 V Star
We report the detection of a transiting Jupiter-sized planet orbiting a relatively bright (V = 11.79) K0 V star. We detected the transit light-curve signature in the course of the TrES multisiteExpand
