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
Rotation Periods of 34,030 Kepler Main-Sequence Stars: The Full Autocorrelation Sample
We analyzed 3 years of data from the Kepler space mission to derive rotation periods of main-sequence stars below 6500 K. Our automated autocorrelation-based method detected rotation periods betweenExpand
Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission VIII. CoRoT-7b: the first Super-Earth with measured radius
Aims. We report the discovery of very shallow (ΔF/F ≈ 3.4× 10 −4 ), periodic dips in the light curve of an active V = 11.7 G9V star observed by the CoRoT satellite, which we interpret as caused by aExpand
Detection of transits of the nearby hot Neptune GJ 436 b
This Letter reports on the photometric detection of transits of the Neptune-mass planet orbiting the nearby M-dwarf star GJ 436. It is by far the closest, smallest, and least massive transitingExpand
A Survey of Proper-Motion Stars. XVI. Orbital Solutions for 171 Single-lined Spectroscopic Binaries*
We report 25,563 radial velocity measurements for 1359 single-lined stars in the Carney-Latham sample of 1464 stars selected for high proper motion. For 171 of these, we present spectroscopic orbitalExpand
Transiting circumbinary planets Kepler-34 b and Kepler-35 b
The observed rate of circumbinary planets in this sample implies that more than ∼1% of close binary stars have giant planets in nearly coplanar orbits, yielding a Galactic population of at least several million. Expand
Measuring the rotation period distribution of field M dwarfs with Kepler
We have analysed 10 months of public data from the Kepler space mission to measure rotation periods of main-sequence stars with masses between 0.3 and 0.55 M_sun. To derive the rotational period weExpand
The Transit Light Curve Project. V. System Parameters and Stellar Rotation Period of HD 189733
We present photometry of HD 189733 during eight transits of its close-in giant planet, and out-of-transit photometry spanning 2 yr. Using the transit photometry, we determine the stellar andExpand
HD 147506b: A supermassive planet in an eccentric orbit transiting a bright star
We report the discovery of a massive (M_p = 9.04 ± 0.50 M_J) planet transiting the bright (V = 8.7) F8 star HD 147506, with an orbital period of 5.63341 ± 0.00013 days and an eccentricity of e =Expand
