Aims. Our aim is to search for and study the origin of the low-amplitude and long-periodic radial velocity (RV) variations in K giants. Methods. We present high-resolution RV measurements of K2 giantCrB from February 2005 to January 2012 using the fiber-fed Bohyunsan Observatory Echelle Spectrograph (BOES) at the Bohyunsan Optical Astronomy Observatory (BOAO). Results. We find that the RV measurements forCrB exhibit a periodic variation of 417.9 ± 0.5 days with a semi-amplitude of 129.4 ± 2. 0m… Expand

1SWASP J093010.78+533859.5: A possible hierarchical quintuple system
Among quadruples or higher multiplicity stars, only a few doubly eclipsing binary systems have been discovered. They are important targets for understanding the formation and evolution of multipleExpand


Detection of a planetary companion around the giant star γ1 Leonis
Aims. Our primary goal is to search for planets around intermediate mass stars. We are also interested in studying the nature of radial velocity (RV) variations of K giant stars. Methods. We selectedExpand
A likely exoplanet orbiting the oscillating K-giant α Arietis
Aims. To search for extrasolar planets around intermediate-mass stars, we are conducting a precise RV survey around K-giants. Methods. We present high-accuracy RV measurements of α Ari made fromExpand
Discovery of a planet around the K giant star 4 Ursae Majoris
For the past 3 years we have been monitoring a sample of 62 K giant stars using precise stellar radial velocity measurements with high accuracy taken at the Thuringer Landessternwarte Tautenburg. WeExpand
Planetary companions around the K giant stars 11 Ursae Minoris and HD 32518
Context. 11 UMi and HD 32518 belong to a sample of 62 K giant stars that has been observed since February 2004 using the 2m Alfred Jensch telescope of the Thuringer Landessternwarte ( TLS ) toExpand
Precise radial velocities of giant stars. II. Pollux and its planetary companion
It has long been speculated that the observed periodic radial velocity pattern for the K giant Pollux might be explained in terms of an orbiting planetary companion. We have collected 80Expand
Discovery of a Substellar Companion to the K2 III Giant ι Draconis
We report precise radial velocity measurements of the K giant ι Dra (HD 137759, HR 5744, HIP 75458), carried out at Lick Observatory, which reveal the presence of a substellar companion orbiting theExpand
We introduce the Pan-Pacific Planet Search, a survey of 170 metal-rich Southern Hemisphere subgiants using the 3.9 m Anglo-Australian Telescope. We report the first discovery from this program, aExpand
A planet around the evolved intermediate-mass star HD 110014 ,
Context. We found evidence for a sub–stellar companion around the K giant star HD 110014. This cool evolved star, with a spectral type K2III and an estimated mass between 1.9 and 2.4 M� , is slightlyExpand
