We present time series Doppler data from Lick Observatory that reveal the presence of long-period planetary companions orbiting nearby stars. The typical eccentricity of these massive planets are greater than the mean eccentricity of known exoplanets. HD 30562b has Msin i = 1.29 M_(Jup), with semimajor axis of 2.3 AU and eccentricity 0.76. The host star has a spectral type F8V and is metal rich. HD 86264b has M sin i = 7.0 M_(Jup), ɑ_(rel) = 2.86 AU, an eccentricity e = 0.7 and orbits a metal… 
A High-eccentricity Component in the Double-planet System around HD 163607 and a Planet around HD 164509
We report the detection of three new exoplanets from Keck Observatory. HD 163607 is a metal-rich G5IV star with two planets. The inner planet has an observed orbital period of 75.29 ± 0.02 days, a
The California Planet Survey. I. Four New Giant Exoplanets
We present precise Doppler measurements of four stars obtained during the past decade at Keck Observatory by the California Planet Survey (CPS). These stars, namely, HD 34445, HD 126614, HD 13931,
Planetary systems in close binary stars: the case of HD 196885 - Combined astrometric and radial velocity study
Context. More than fifty candidate planets are presently known to orbit one component of a binary or a multiple star system. Planets can therefore form and survive in such an environment, although
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.
The SOPHIE search for northern extrasolar planets - V. Follow-up of ELODIE candidates: Jupiter-analogs around Sun-like stars
We present radial-velocity measurements obtained in one of a number of programs underway to search for extrasolar planets with the spectrograph SOPHIE at the 1.93-m telescope of the Haute-Provence
Dynamical analysis and constraints for the HD 196885 system
The HD 196885 system is composed of a binary star and a planet orbiting the primary. The orbit of the binary is fully constrained by astrometry, but for the planet the inclination with respect to the
The Lick-Carnegie Exoplanet Survey: HD 32963—A New Jupiter Analog Orbiting a Sun-like Star
We present a set of 109 new, high-precision Keck/HIRES radial velocity (RV) observations for the solar-type star HD 32963. Our dataset reveals a candidate planetary signal with a period of 6.49 $\pm$
On the Likelihood of Planet Formation in Close Binaries
To date, several exoplanets have been discovered orbiting stars with close binary companions (a~<30 AU). The fact that planets can form in these dynamically challenging environments implies that
Can there be additional rocky planets in the Habitable Zone of tight binary stars with a known gas giant
Locating planets in Habitable Zones (HZs) around other stars is a growing field in contemporary astronomy. Since a large percentage of all G-M stars in the solar neighborhood are expected to be part
