  • Due to its proximity, youth, and solar-like characteristics with a spectral type of K2V, � Eri is one of the most extensively studied systems in an extrasolar planet context. Based on radial velocity, astrometry, and studies of the structure of its circumstellar debris disk, at least two planetary companion candidates toEri have been inferred in the literature (� Eri b, � Eri c). Some of these methods also hint at additional companions residing in the system. Here we present a new adaptive… CONTINUE READING
