We present a catalog of nearby exoplanets. It contains the 172 known low-mass companions with orbits established through radial velocity and transit measurements around stars within 200 pc. We include five previously unpublished exoplanets orbiting the stars HD 11964, HD 66428, HD 99109, HD 107148, and HD 164922. We update orbits for 83 additional exoplanets, including many whose orbits have not been revised since their announcement, and include radial velocity time series from the Lick, Keck… 

Debris Disks around Sun-like Stars

We have observed nearly 200 FGK stars at 24 and 70 μm with the Spitzer Space Telescope. We identify excess infrared emission, including a number of cases where the observed flux is more than 10 times

The frequency of planets in multiple systems

Context. The frequency of planets in binaries is an important issue in the field of extrasolar planet studies, because of its relevance in estimating of the global planet population of our Galaxy and

A Bayesian Kepler periodogram detects a second planet in HD 208487

An automatic Bayesian Kepler periodogram has been developed for identifying and characterizing multiple planetary orbits in precision radial velocity data. The periodogram is powered by a parallel


We present the latest velocities for ten multiplanet systems, including a re-analysis of archival Keck and Lick data, resulting in improved velocities that supersede our previously published

The CORALIE survey for southern extrasolar planets - XVII. New and updated long period and massive planets

Context. Since 1998, a planet-search program around main sequence stars within 50 pc in the southern hemisphere has been carried out with the CORALIE echelle spectrograph at La Silla Observatory.

Debris disks as signposts of terrestrial planet formation

There exists strong circumstantial evidence from their eccentric orbits that most of the known extra-solar planetary systems are the survivors of violent dynamical instabilities. Here we explore the

The Super Earth–Cold Jupiter Relations

We report relations between inner ($ 1$ au) giant planets (mass $>0.3~M_{\rm J}$, or cold Jupiters) around Sun-like stars, based on data from both ground-based radial velocity (RV) observations and

Statistical properties of brown dwarf companions: implications for different formation mechanisms

The mass domain where massive extrasolar planets and brown dwarfs overlap is still poorly understood due to the paucity of brown dwarfs orbiting close to solar-type stars, the so-called brown dwarf

Debris disks as signposts of terrestrial planet formation - II. Dependence of exoplanet architectures on giant planet and disk properties

We present models for the formation of terrestrial planets, and the collisional evolution of debris disks, in planetary systems that contain multiple marginally unstable gas giants. We previousl y

The SOPHIE search for northern extrasolar planets - IV. Massive companions in the planet-brown dwarf boundary

Context. The mass domain where massive extrasolar planets and brown dwarfs lie is still poorly understood. Indeed, not even a clear dividing line between massive planets and brown dwarfs has been



Elodie metallicity-biased search for transiting Hot Jupiters I. Two Hot Jupiters orbiting the slig

We report the discovery of a new planet candidate orbiting the subgiant star HD118203 with a period of P=6.1335 days. The best Keplerian solution yields an eccentricity e=0.31 and a minimum mass

Spectroscopic metallicities for planet-host stars: Extending the samples

We present stellar parameters and metallicities for 29 planet-host stars, as well as for a large volume-limited sample of 53 stars not known to be orbited by any planetary-mass companion. These stars

TrES-1: The Transiting Planet of a Bright K0 V Star

We report the detection of a transiting Jupiter-sized planet orbiting a relatively bright (V = 11.79) K0 V star. We detected the transit light-curve signature in the course of the TrES multisite

HIRES: the high-resolution echelle spectrometer on the Keck 10-m Telescope

We describe the high resolution echelle spectrometer (HIRES) now in operation on the Keck Telescope. HIRES, which is permanently located at a Nasmyth focus, is a standard in-plane echelle

Spectroscopic Properties of Cool Stars (SPOCS). I. 1040 F, G, and K Dwarfs from Keck, Lick, and AAT Planet Search Programs

We present a uniform catalog of stellar properties for 1040 nearby F, G, and K stars that have been observed by the Keck, Lick, and AAT planet search programs. Fitting observed echelle spectra with

The N2K Consortium. III. Short-Period Planets Orbiting HD 149143 and HD 109749

We report the detection of two short-period planets discovered at Keck Observatory. HD 149143 is a metal-rich G0 IV star with a planet of M sin i = 1.33MJ and an orbital radius of 0.053 AU. The

Five New Extrasolar Planets

We report multiple Doppler measurements of five nearby FGK main-sequence stars and subgiants obtained during the past 4-6 yr at the Keck Observatory. These stars, namely, HD 183263, HD 117207, HD

The N2K Consortium. II. A Transiting Hot Saturn around HD 149026 with a Large Dense Core

Doppler measurements from Subaru and Keck have revealed radial velocity variations in the V = 8.15, G0 IV star HD 149026 consistent with a Saturn-mass planet in a 2.8766 day orbit. Photometric

A ~7.5 M⊕ Planet Orbiting the Nearby Star, GJ 876

High-precision, high-cadence radial velocity monitoring over the past 8 yr at the W. M. Keck Observatory reveals evidence for a third planet orbiting the nearby (4.69 pc) dM4 star GJ 876. The

Planets Orbiting Other Suns

After a century fraught with false claims, evidence for planets around other stars finally appears robust. Infrared imaging and spectroscopy of disks around stars foreshadow detailed models of the
