We report the confirmation and characterization of a transiting gas giant planet orbiting the M dwarf KOI-254 every 2.455239 days, which was originally discovered by the Kepler mission. We use radial velocity measurements, adaptive optics imaging, and near-infrared spectroscopy to confirm the planetary nature of the transit events. KOI-254 b is the first hot Jupiter discovered around an M-type dwarf star. We also present a new model-independent method of using broadband photometry to estimate… 
CHARACTERIZING THE COOL KOIs. VI. H- AND K-BAND SPECTRA OF KEPLER M DWARF PLANET-CANDIDATE HOSTS
We present H- and K-band spectra for late-type Kepler Objects of Interest (the “Cool KOIs”): low-mass stars with transiting-planet candidates discovered by NASA's Kepler Mission that are listed on
THE MASS OF KOI-94d AND A RELATION FOR PLANET RADIUS, MASS, AND INCIDENT FLUX
We measure the mass of a modestly irradiated giant planet, KOI-94d. We wish to determine whether this planet, which is in a 22 day orbit and receives 2700 times as much incident flux as Jupiter, is
Characterization of Low-mass K2 Planet Hosts Using Near-infrared Spectroscopy
We present moderate resolution near-infrared spectra in the H, J, and K band of M-dwarf hosts to candidate transiting exoplanets discovered by NASA’s K2 mission. We employ known empirical
CHARACTERIZING THE COOL KOIs. VIII. PARAMETERS OF THE PLANETS ORBITING KEPLER’S COOLEST DWARFS
The coolest dwarf stars targeted by the Kepler Mission constitute a relatively small but scientifically valuable subset of the Kepler target stars, and provide a high-fidelity, nearby sample of
Pan-Planets: Searching for hot Jupiters around cool dwarfs
The Pan-Planets survey observed an area of 42 sq deg. in the galactic disk for about 165 h. The main scientific goal of the project is the detection of transiting planets around M dwarfs. We

The Kepler space telescope has opened new vistas in exoplanet discovery space by revealing populations of Earth-sized planets that provide a new context for understanding planet formation.
THE NASA-UC-UH ETA-EARTH PROGRAM. IV. A LOW-MASS PLANET ORBITING AN M DWARF 3.6 PC FROM EARTH
We report the discovery of a low-mass planet orbiting Gl 15 A based on radial velocities from the Eta-Earth Survey using HIRES at Keck Observatory. Gl 15 Ab is a planet with minimum mass Msin i =
A Warm Jupiter Transiting an M Dwarf: A TESS Single-transit Event Confirmed with the Habitable-zone Planet Finder
We confirm the planetary nature of a warm Jupiter transiting the early M dwarf TOI-1899 using a combination of available TESS photometry; high-precision, near-infrared spectroscopy with the
AN EMPIRICAL CALIBRATION TO ESTIMATE COOL DWARF FUNDAMENTAL PARAMETERS FROM H-BAND SPECTRA
Interferometric radius measurements provide a direct probe of the fundamental parameters of M dwarfs. However, interferometry is within reach for only a limited sample of nearby, bright stars. We use
HATS-71b: A Giant Planet Transiting an M3 Dwarf Star in TESS Sector 1
We report the discovery of HATS-71b, a transiting gas giant planet on a day orbit around a mag M3 dwarf star. HATS-71 is the coolest M dwarf star known to host a hot Jupiter. The loss of light during
