Stars with planets at intermediate metallicities ([-0.7,0.2] dex) exhibit properties that di ffer from the general field stars. Thirteen stars with planets reported in this metallicity range belong to th e ick disc, while only one planet have been detected among s tars of the thin disc. Although this statistics is weak, it contradicts the known correlation between the presence of planet and met allicity. We relate this finding to the specific property of the thin disc in this metallicity range… CONTINUE READING
