We report the discovery of a highly eccentric long-period Jovian planet orbiting the hot-Jupiter host HD 83443. By combining radial velocity data from four instruments (AAT/UCLES, Keck/HIRES, HARPS, Minerva-Australis) spanning more than two decades, we find evidence for a planet with m sin i=1.35−0.06+0.07 M J, moving on an orbit with a = 8.0 ± 0.8 au and eccentricity e = 0.76 ± 0.05. We combine our radial velocity analysis with Gaia eDR3 /Hipparcos proper motion anomalies and derive a… 


TOI-3362b: A Proto Hot Jupiter Undergoing High-eccentricity Tidal Migration
High-eccentricity tidal migration is a possible way for giant planets to be placed in short-period orbits. If this happens often, one would expect to catch proto hot Jupiters on highly elliptical
14 Her: A Likely Case of Planet–Planet Scattering
In this Letter, we measure the full orbital architecture of the two-planet system around the nearby K0 dwarf 14 Herculis. 14 Her (HD 145675, HIP 79248) is a middle-aged ( 4.6−1.3+3.8 Gyr) K0 star
On the Double-Planet System around HD 83443
The Geneva group has reported two Saturn-mass planets orbiting HD 83443 (K0 V) with periods of 2.98 and 29.8 days. The two planets have raised interest in their dynamics because of the possible 10 :
On the Origin of Massive Eccentric Planets
We propose a merger scenario for the newly discovered extrasolar planets around 70 Vir (Marcy & Butler) and HD 114762 (Latham, Stefanik, & Mazeh; Marcy & Butler). These planets have mass Mp sin i =
We report the detection of two new planets orbiting the K giants HD 86950 and HD 222076, based on precise radial velocities obtained with three instruments: AAT/UCLES, FEROS, and CHIRON. HD 86950b
In the Presence of a Wrecking Ball: Orbital Stability in the HR 5183 System
Discoveries of exoplanets using the radial velocity method are progressively reaching out to increasingly longer orbital periods as the duration of surveys continues to climb. The improving
Precise Masses and Orbits for Nine Radial-velocity Exoplanets
Radial-velocity (RV) surveys have discovered hundreds of exoplanetary systems but suffer from a fundamental degeneracy between planet mass M p and orbital inclination i. In this paper, we resolve
A dynamical analysis of the proposed HU Aquarii planetary system
It has recently been suggested that the eclipsing polar HU Aquarii is a host to at least two giant planets. We have performed highly detailed dynamical analyses of the orbits of those planets and
The Planet-Metallicity Correlation
We have recently carried out spectral synthesis modeling to determine Teff, log g, v sin i, and [Fe/H] for 1040 FGK-type stars on the Keck, Lick, and Anglo-Australian Telescope planet search
Nearly Polar orbit of the sub-Neptune HD3167 c: Constraints on a multi-planet system dynamical history
We present the obliquity measurement i.e. the angle between the normal of the planet orbital plane and stellar spin axis of the sub-Neptune planet HD3167 c that transits a bright, nearby K0 star. New
