We present the results of a comprehensive assessment of companions to solar-type stars. A sample of 454 stars, including the Sun, was selected from the Hipparcos catalog with π>40 mas, σπ/π < 0.05, 0.5 ⩽ B − V ⩽ 1.0 (∼F6–K3), and constrained by absolute magnitude and color to exclude evolved stars. These criteria are equivalent to selecting all dwarf and subdwarf stars within 25 pc with V-band flux between 0.1 and 10 times that of the Sun, giving us a physical basis for the term “solar-type…

SURVEYING THE BRIGHT STARS BY OPTICAL INTERFEROMETRY. I. A SEARCH FOR MULTIPLICITY AMONG STARS OF SPECTRAL TYPES F-K
We present the first results from an ongoing survey for multiplicity among the bright stars using the Navy Precision Optical Interferometer (NPOI). We first present a summary of NPOI observations of
Close Companions around Young Stars
Multiplicity is a fundamental property that is set early during stellar lifetimes, and it is a stringent probe of the physics of star formation. The distribution of close companions around young
THE MULTIPLICITY OF MASSIVE STARS: A HIGH ANGULAR RESOLUTION SURVEY WITH THE HST FINE GUIDANCE SENSOR
We present the results of an all-sky survey made with the Fine Guidance Sensor on the Hubble Space Telescope to search for angularly resolved binary systems among massive stars. The sample of 224
LOW-MASS VISUAL COMPANIONS TO NEARBY G-DWARFS
A complete census of wide visual companions to nearby G-dwarf stars can be achieved by selecting candidates from the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS) Point-Source Catalog and checking their status
BINARY CEPHEIDS: SEPARATIONS AND MASS RATIOS IN 5 M☉ BINARIES
Deriving the distribution of binary parameters for a particular class of stars over the full range of orbital separations usually requires the combination of results from many different observing
DETECTION OF STARS WITHIN ∼0.8 in OF Kepler OBJECTS OF INTEREST
We present an algorithm to search for the faint spectrum of a second star mixed with the spectrum of a brighter star in high resolution spectra. We model optical stellar spectra as the sum of two
The Close Binary Fraction of Solar-type Stars Is Strongly Anticorrelated with Metallicity
There is now strong evidence that the close binary fraction (P < 104 days; a < 10 au) of solar-type stars (M1 ≈ 0.6–1.5 ) decreases significantly with metallicity. Although early surveys showed that
