We report low-mass companions orbiting five solar-type stars that have emerged from the Magellan precision Doppler velocity survey, with minimum (Msin i) masses ranging from 1.2 to 25 M JUP. These nearby target stars range from mildly metal-poor to metal-rich, and appear to have low chromospheric activity. The companions to the brightest two of these stars have previously been reported from the CORALIE survey. Four of these companions (HD 48265-b, HD 143361-b, HD 28185-b, and HD 111232-b) are… 
Five Long-period Extrasolar Planets in Eccentric Orbits from the Magellan Planet Search Program
Five new planets orbiting G and K dwarfs have emerged from the Magellan velocity survey. These companions are Jovian-mass planets in eccentric (e ≥ 0.24) intermediate- and long-period orbits. HD
Binary frequency of planet-host stars at wide separations: A new brown dwarf companion to a planet-host star
The aim of the project is to improve our knowledge on the multiplicity of planet-host stars at wide physical separations. We cross-matched approximately 6200 square degree area of the Southern sky
A compact multi-planet system around a bright nearby star from the Dispersed Matter Planet Project
To put the Solar System’s terrestrial planets in context, the detection and characterization of low-mass exoplanets is important but challenging. The Dispersed Matter Planet Project targets stars
Search for brown-dwarf companions of stars
Context. The frequency of brown-dwarf companions in close orbit around Sun-like stars is low compared to the frequency of planetary and stellar companions. There is presently no comprehensive
New planetary systems from the Calan-Hertfordshire Extrasolar planet search
We report the discovery of eight new giant planets, and updated orbits for four known planets, orbiting dwarf and subgiant stars using the CORALIE, HARPS, and MIKE instruments as part of the
The HARPS search for southern extra-solar planets - XXIV. Companions to HD 85390, HD 90156, and HD 103197: a Neptune analog and two intermediate-mass planets
We report the detection of three new extrasolar planets orbiting the solar type stars HD 85390, HD 90156 and HD 103197 with the HARPS spectrograph mounted on the ESO 3.6-m telescope at La Silla
MagAO Imaging of Long-period Objects (MILO). I. A Benchmark M Dwarf Companion Exciting a Massive Planet around the Sun-like Star HD 7449
We present high-contrast Magellan adaptive optics (MagAO) images of HD 7449, a Sun-like star with one planet and a long-term radial velocity (RV) trend. We unambiguously detect the source of the
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.
Mass constraints on substellar companion candidates from the re-reduced Hipparcos intermediate astrometric data: nine confirmed planets and two confirmed brown dwarfs
Context. The recently completed re-reduction of the Hipparcos data by van Leeuwen (2007a, Astrophysics and Space Science Library, 350) makes it possible to search for the astrometric signatures of
Li depletion in solar analogues with exoplanets - Extending the sample
Aims. We want to study the effects of the formation of planets and planetary systems on the atmospheric Li abundance of planet host stars. Methods. In this work we present new determinations of


We report the detection of the first two planets from the N2K Doppler planet search program at the Magellan telescopes. The first planet has a mass of Msin i = 4.96 M Jup and orbits the G3 IV star HD
A Jupiter-mass companion to a solar-type star
The presence of a Jupiter-mass companion to the star 51 Pegasi is inferred from observations of periodic variations in the star's radial velocity. The companion lies only about eight million
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
Detection of Planetary Transits Across a Sun-like Star.
High-precision, high-cadence photometric measurements of the star HD 209458 are reported, which is known from radial velocity measurements to have a planetary-mass companion in a close orbit and the detailed shape of the transit curve due to both the limb darkening of thestar and the finite size of the planet is clearly evident.
Evidence for Multiple Companions to υ Andromedae
The bright F8 V star t Andromedae was previously reported to have a 4.6 day Doppler velocity periodicity, consistent with having a Jupiter-mass companion orbiting at 0.059 AU. Follow-up obser-
