Context. The relevance of M dwarfs in the search for potentially habitable Earth-sized planets has grown significantly in the last years. Aims. In our on-going effort to comprehensively and accurately characterise confirmed and potential planet-hosting M dwarfs, in particular for the CARMENES survey, we have carried out a comprehensive multi-band photometric analysis involving spectral energy distributions, luminosities, absolute magnitudes, colours, and spectral types, from which we have… 
Discovery of a hot, transiting, Earth-sized planet and a second temperate, non-transiting planet around the M4 dwarf GJ 3473 (TOI-488)
We present the confirmation and characterisation of GJ 3473 b (G 50–16, TOI-488.01), a hot Earth-sized planet orbiting an M4 dwarf star, whose transiting signal (P = 1.1980035 ± 0.0000018 d) was
A Transiting, Temperate Mini-Neptune Orbiting the M Dwarf TOI-1759 Unveiled by TESS
We report the discovery and characterization of TOI-1759 b, a temperate (400 K) sub-Neptune-sized exoplanet orbiting the M dwarf TOI-1759 (TIC 408636441). TOI-1759 b was observed by TESS to transit
On the Detectability of Post-common-envelope Binary Central Stars of Planetary Nebulae
Common envelope evolution is widely accepted as the principal shaping agent in the formation of aspherical planetary nebulae. However, only some 20% of planetary nebulae are found to host
GJ 367b: A dense, ultrashort-period sub-Earth planet transiting a nearby red dwarf star
A sub-Earth–sized planet with a density almost equivalent to pure iron is identified on a 7.7-hour orbit around a nearby red dwarf star, suggesting that it is the iron core of a planet that has lost its outer mantle.
Stellar Spins in the Pleiades, Praesepe, and M35 Open Clusters
We analyze spectroscopic and photometric data to determine the projected inclinations of stars in three open clusters: the Pleiades, Praesepe, and M35. We determine the sini values of 42, 35, and 67
A scaling relationship for non-thermal radio emission from ordered magnetospheres: from the top of the main sequence to planets
In this paper, we present the analysis of incoherent non-thermal radio emission from a sample of hot magnetic stars, ranging from early-B to early-A spectral type. Spanning a wide range of stellar
CARMENES input catalog of M dwarfs
Context. Radial-velocity (RV) jitter caused by stellar magnetic activity is an important factor in state-of-the-art exoplanet discovery surveys such as CARMENES. Stellar rotation, along with
TOI-1749: an M dwarf with a Trio of Planets including a Near-resonant Pair
We report the discovery of one super-Earth- (TOI-1749b) and two sub-Neptune-sized planets (TOI-1749c and TOI-1749d) transiting an early M dwarf at a distance of 100 pc, which were first identified as
Past, present and future stars that can see Earth as a transiting exoplanet.
It is reported that 1,715 stars within 100 parsecs from the Sun are in the right position to have spotted life on a transiting Earth since early human civilization (about 5,000 years ago), with an additional 319 stars entering this special vantage point in the next 5, thousand years.
One Is the Loneliest Number: Multiplicity in Cool Dwarfs
Stars in multiple systems offer a unique opportunity to learn about stellar formation and evolution. As they settle down into stable configurations, multiple systems occur in a variety of hierarchies


CARMENES input catalogue of M dwarfs. I. Low-resolution spectroscopy with CAFOS
Context. CARMENES is a stabilised, high-resolution, double-channel spectrograph at the 3.5 m Calar Alto telescope. It is optimally designed for radial-velocity surveys of M dwarfs with potentially
The UV and X-ray activity of the M dwarfs within 10 pc of the Sun
M dwarfs are the most numerous stars in the Galaxy. They are characterized by strong magnetic activity. The ensuing high-energy emission is crucial for the evolution of their planets and the eventual
We use moderate-resolution spectra of nearby late K and M dwarf stars with parallaxes and interferometrically determined radii to refine their effective temperatures, luminosities, and metallicities.
M dwarfs: effective temperatures, radii and metallicities
We empirically determine effective temperatures and bolometric luminosities for a large sample of nearby M dwarfs, for which high accuracy optical and infrared photometry is available. We introduce a

Aims. The main goal of this work is to measure rotation periods of the M-type dwarf stars being observed by the CARMENES exoplanet survey to help distinguish radial-velocity signals produced by
Stellar parameters of early M dwarfs from ratios of spectral features at optical wavelengths
(Abridged) Low-mass stars have been recognised as promising targets in the search for rocky, small planets with the potential of supporting life. Doppler search programmes using high-resolution
Precision Stellar Characterization of FGKM Stars using an Empirical Spectral Library
Classification of stars, by comparing their optical spectra to a few dozen spectral standards, has been a workhorse of observational astronomy for more than a century. Here, we extend this technique
The MEarth survey is a search for small rocky planets around the smallest, nearest stars to the Sun as identified by high proper motion with red colors. We augmented our planetary search time series

Exploring the stellar properties of M dwarfs with high-resolution spectroscopy from the optical to the near-infrared (Corrigendum)
Context. Being the most numerous and oldest stars in the galaxy, M dwarfs are objects of great interest for exoplanet searches. The presence of molecules in their atmosphere complicates our
