The mass of the neutron star in Vela X-1 and tidally induced non-radial oscillations in GP Vel
We report new radial velocity observations of GP Vel / HD 77581, the optical companion to the eclipsing X-ray pulsar Vela X-1. Using data spanning more than two complete orbits of the system, weExpand

Revised Stellar Properties of Kepler Targets for the Quarter 1-16 Transit Detection Run
We present revised properties for 196,468 stars observed by the NASA Kepler mission and used in the analysis of Quarter 1-16 (Q1-Q16) data to detect and characterize transiting planets. The catalogExpand

Correcting Stellar Oscillation Frequencies for Near-Surface Effects
In helioseismology, there is a well-known offset between observed and computed oscillation frequencies. This offset is known to arise from improper modeling of the near-surface layers of the Sun, andExpand

Accurate fundamental parameters for 23 bright solar-type stars
We combine results from interferometry, asteroseismology and spectroscopy to determine accurate fundamental parameters of 23 bright solar-type stars, from spectral type F5 to K2 and luminosityExpand

Masses, Radii, and Orbits of Small Kepler Planets: The Transition From Gaseous to Rocky Planets
We report on the masses, sizes, and orbits of the planets orbiting 22 Kepler stars. There are 49 planet candidates around these stars, including 42 detected through transits and 7 revealed by preciseExpand

Ages and fundamental properties of Kepler exoplanet host stars from asteroseismology
We present a study of 33 {\it Kepler} planet-candidate host stars for which asteroseismic observations have sufficiently high signal-to-noise ratio to allow extraction of individual pulsationExpand

A close halo of large transparent grains around extreme red giant stars
An intermediate-mass star ends its life by ejecting the bulk of its envelope in a slow, dense wind. Stellar pulsations are thought to elevate gas to an altitude cool enough for the condensation ofExpand

Kepler-36: A Pair of Planets with Neighboring Orbits and Dissimilar Densities
So Close and So Different In our solar system, the rocky planets have very distinct orbits from those of the gas giants. Carter et al. (p. 556, published online 21 June) report on a planetary systemExpand

Standing on the Shoulders of Dwarfs: the Kepler Asteroseismic LEGACY Sample. II.Radii, Masses, and Ages
We use asteroseismic data from the Kepler satellite to determine fundamental stellar properties of the 66 main-sequence targets observed for at least one full year by the mission. We distributed tensExpand

FUNDAMENTAL PROPERTIES OF KEPLER PLANET-CANDIDATE HOST STARS USING ASTEROSEISMOLOGY
We have used asteroseismology to determine fundamental properties for 66 Kepler planet-candidate host stars, with typical uncertainties of 3% and 7% in radius and mass, respectively. The resultsExpand
