We report homogeneous spectroscopic determinations of the effective temperature, metallicity, and projected rotational velocity for the host stars of 56 transiting planets. Our analysis is based primarily on the Stellar Parameter Classification (SPC) technique. We investigate systematic errors by examining subsets of the data with two other methods that have often been used in previous studies (SME and MOOG). The SPC and SME results, both based on comparisons between synthetic spectra and… Expand

Revised Stellar Properties of Kepler Targets for the Quarter 1-16 Transit Detection Run
We present revised properties for 196,468 stars observed by the NASA Kepler mission and used in the analysis of Quarter 1-16 (Q1-Q16) data to detect and characterize transiting planets. The catalogExpand
Exploring the α-enhancement of metal-poor planet-hosting stars. The Kepler and HARPS samples
Recent studies have shown that at low metallicities Doppler-detected planet-hosting stars tend to have high α-content and to belong to the thick disk. We used the reconnaissance spectra of 87 KeplerExpand

Retired A Stars Revisited: An Updated Giant Planet Occurrence Rate as a Function of Stellar Metallicity and Mass
Exoplanet surveys of evolved stars have provided increasing evidence that the formation of giant planets depends not only on stellar metallicity ([Fe/H]), but also the mass ($M_\star$). However,Expand
The Metallicities of Stars With and Without Transiting Planets
Host star metallicities have been used to infer observational constraints on planet formation throughout the history of the exoplanet field. The giant planet metallicity correlation has now beenExpand
