The Origin of Mercury
Abstract Mercury’s unusually high mean density has always been attributed to special circumstances that occurred during the formation of the planet or shortly thereafter, and due to the planet’sExpand
Simulations of the population of Centaurs – I. The bulk statistics
Large-scale simulations of the Centaur population are carried out. The evolution of 23 328 particles based on the orbits of 32 well-known Centaurs is followed for up to 3 Myr in the forward andExpand
Simulations of the population of Centaurs – II. Individual objects
Detailed orbit integrations of clones of five Centaurs ‐ namely, 1996 AR20, 2060 Chiron, 1995 SN55, 2000 FZ53 and 2002 FY36 ‐ for durations of ∼3 Myr are presented. One of our Centaur sample startsExpand
Signals embedded in the radial velocity noise - Periodic variations in the τ Ceti velocities
Context. The abilities of radial velocity exoplanet surveys to detect the lowest-mass extra-solar planets are currently limited by a combination of instrument precision, lack of data, and 'jitter'.Expand
Gj 832c: A super-Earth in the habitable zone
Robert A. Wittenmyer, et al., 'GJ832c: A super-Earth in the habitable zone', The Astrophysical Journal, Vol. 791 (2), first published 5 August 2014. The version of record is available at doi:Expand
The GALAH survey: observational overview and Gaia DR1 companion
The Galactic Archaeology with HERMES (GALAH) Survey is a massive observational project to trace the Milky Way's history of star formation, chemical enrichment, stellar migration and minor mergers.Expand
The Anglo-Australian Planet Search XXIV: The Frequency of Jupiter Analogs
We present updated simulations of the detectability of Jupiter analogs by the 17-year Anglo-Australian Planet Search. The occurrence rate of Jupiter-like planets that have remained near theirExpand
"TNOs are cool": A survey of the trans-Neptunian region II. The thermal lightcurve of (136108) Haumea
Thermal emission from Kuiper Belt object (136108) Haumea was measured with Herschel-PACS at 100 and 160 micrometers for almost a full rotation period. Observations clearly indicate a 100-micrometerExpand
The dynamical evolution of dwarf planet (136108) Haumea’s collisional family: general properties and implications for the trans-Neptunian belt
Recently, the first collisional family was identified in the trans-Neptunian belt (otherwise known as the Edgeworth-Kuiper belt), providing direct evidence of the importance of collisions betweenExpand
The populations of comet-like bodies in the Solar system
A new classification scheme is introduced for comet-like bodies in the Solar system. It covers the traditional comets as well as the Centaurs and Edgeworth–Kuiper belt objects. At low inclinations,Expand
