precision (3 m s −1 ) and long duration. The 104 planets detected in this survey have minimum masses (M sin i )a s low as 6MEarth, orbiting between 0.02 and 6 AU. The core-accretion model of planet formation is supported by four observations: 1) The mass distribution rises toward the lowest detectable masses, dN /dM ∝ M −1.0 . 2) Stellar metallicity correlates strongly with the presence of planets. 3) One planet (1.3 MSat) has a massive rocky core, MCore ≈ 70 MEarth. 4) A super-Earth of ∼ 7… Expand
Close-Orbiting Exoplanets: Formation, Migration Mechanisms and Properties
The discovery of a signal from a putative extra-solar planet around the nearby Sun-like star 51 Peg by Mayor & Queloz and the rapid confirmation by Marcy & Butler was the main starting point for theExpand
The eccentricity-mass distribution of exoplanets: signatures of different formation mechanisms?
We examine the distributions of eccentricity and host star metallicity of exoplanets as a function of their mass. Planets with $M \sin i \ga 4$  M J have an eccentricity distribution consistent withExpand
Possible constraints on exoplanet magnetic field strengths from planet-star interaction
A small percentage of normal stars harbor giant planets that orbit within a few tenths of an astronomical unit. At such distances, the potential exists for significant tidal and magnetic fieldExpand
Transiting extrasolar planetary candidates in the Galactic bulge
TLDR
16 candidates with orbital periods between 0.4 and 4.2 days are discovered, constituting a new class of ultra-short-period planets, which occur only around stars of less than 0.88 M[circdot], indicating that those orbiting very close to more-luminous stars might be evaporatively destroyed or that jovian planets aroundStars of lower mass might migrate to smaller radii.

Statistical Properties of Exoplanets
Since the detection a decade ago of the planetary companion of 51 Peg, more than 200 extrasolar planets have been unveiled, mostly by radial-velocity measurements but also in a few cases byExpand
M stars as targets for terrestrial exoplanet searches and biosignature detection.
TLDR
It is concluded that attempts at remote sensing of biosignatures and nonbiological markers from M star planets are important, not as tests of any quantitative theories or rational arguments, but instead because they offer an inspection of the residues from a Gyr-long biochemistry experiment in the presence of extreme environmental fluctuations.

Origin of the metallicity dependence of exoplanet host stars in the protoplanetary disc mass distribution
The probability of a star hosting a planet that is detectable in radial velocity surveys increases as Ppl(Z) ! (10 Z ) 2 , where Z is stellar metallicity. Models of planet formation by core accretionExpand
A Long‐Period Jupiter‐Mass Planet Orbiting the Nearby M Dwarf GJ 849
We report precise Doppler measurements of GJ 849 (M3.5 V) that reveal the presence of a planet with a minimum mass of 0.82M_Jup in a 5.16 yr orbit. At AU, GJ 849b is the first Doppler‐detected planetExpand
