The rotation and Galactic kinematics of mid M dwarfs in the Solar Neighborhood
Rotation is a directly-observable stellar property, and drives magnetic field generation and activity through a magnetic dynamo. Main sequence stars with masses below approximately 0.35MsunExpand

A temperate rocky super-Earth transiting a nearby cool star
M dwarf stars, which have masses less than 60 per cent that of the Sun, make up 75 per cent of the population of the stars in the Galaxy. The atmospheres of orbiting Earth-sized planets areExpand

PANCHROMATIC OBSERVATIONS OF SN 2011dh POINT TO A COMPACT PROGENITOR STAR
– 3 –the first three weeks after explosion. Combining these observations with earlyoptical photometry, we show that the panchromatic dataset is well-described bynon-thermal synchrotron emissionExpand

A rocky planet transiting a nearby low-mass star
M-dwarf stars—hydrogen-burning stars that are smaller than 60 per cent of the size of the Sun—are the most common class of star in our Galaxy and outnumber Sun-like stars by a ratio of 12:1. RecentExpand

The Impact of Stellar Rotation on the Detectability of Habitable Planets Around M Dwarfs
Stellar activity and rotation frustrate the detection of exoplanets through the radial velocity technique. This effect is particularly of concern for M dwarfs, which can remain magnetically activeExpand

TESS DISCOVERY OF A TRANSITING SUPER-EARTH IN THE π MENSAE SYSTEM.
We report the detection of a transiting planet around π Men (HD 39091), using data from the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS). The solar-type host star is unusually bright (V = 5.7) andExpand

TRIGONOMETRIC PARALLAXES FOR 1507 NEARBY MID-TO-LATE M DWARFS
The MEarth survey is a search for small rocky planets around the smallest, nearest stars to the Sun as identified by high proper motion with red colors. We augmented our planetary search time seriesExpand

LSPM J1112+7626: DETECTION OF A 41 DAY M-DWARF ECLIPSING BINARY FROM THE MEARTH TRANSIT SURVEY
We report the detection of eclipses in LSPM J1112+7626, which we find to be a moderately bright (I{sub C} = 12.14 {+-} 0.05) very low mass binary system with an orbital period of 41.03236 {+-}Expand

AN ACTIVITY–ROTATION RELATIONSHIP AND KINEMATIC ANALYSIS OF NEARBY MID-TO-LATE-TYPE M DWARFS
Using spectroscopic observations and photometric light curves of 238 nearby M dwarfs from the MEarth exoplanet transit survey, we examine the relationships between magnetic activity (quantified by HαExpand

EVLA OBSERVATIONS CONSTRAIN THE ENVIRONMENT AND PROGENITOR SYSTEM OF Type Ia SUPERNOVA 2011fe
We report unique Expanded Very Large Array observations of SN 2011fe representing the most sensitive radio study of a Type Ia supernova to date. Our data place direct constraints on the density ofExpand
