Context. For over 12 yr, we have carried out a precise radial velocity (RV) survey of a sample of 373 G- and K-giant stars using the Hamilton Echelle Spectrograph at the Lick Observatory. There are, among others, a number of multiple planetary systems in our sample as well as several planetary candidates in stellar binaries. Aims. We aim at detecting and characterizing substellar and stellar companions to the giant star HD 59686 A (HR 2877, HIP 36616). Methods. We obtained high-precision RV… 
VERY LOW-MASS STELLAR AND SUBSTELLAR COMPANIONS TO SOLAR-LIKE STARS FROM MARVELS. VI. A GIANT PLANET AND A BROWN DWARF CANDIDATE IN A CLOSE BINARY SYSTEM HD 87646
We report the detections of a giant planet (MARVELS-7b) and a brown dwarf (BD) candidate (MARVELS-7c) around the primary star in the close binary system, HD 87646. To the best of our knowledge, it is
Precise radial velocities of giant stars
Context. Using the Hamilton Échelle Spectrograph at Lick Observatory, we have obtained precise radial velocities (RVs) of a sample of 373 G- and K-giant stars over more than 12 yr, leading to the
A Jupiter-mass planet around the K0 giant HD 208897
For over 10 years, we have carried out a precise radial velocity (RV) survey to find substellar companions around evolved G,K-type stars to extend our knowledge of planet formation and evolution. We
Dynamical Analysis of the Circumprimary Planet in the Eccentric Binary System HD 59686
We present a detailed orbital and stability analysis of the HD 59686 binary-star planet system. HD 59686 is a single-lined, moderately close (aB = 13.6 au) eccentric (eB = 0.73) binary, where the
An ablating 2.6 M⊕ planet in an eccentric binary from the Dispersed Matter Planet Project
Earth mass exoplanets are difficult to detect. The Dispersed Matter Planet Project (DMPP) identifies stars which are likely to host the most detectable low mass exoplanets. The star DMPP-3 (HD 42936)
The Census of Exoplanets in Visual Binaries: Population Trends from a Volume-Limited Gaia DR2 and Literature Search
We present results from an extensive search in the literature and Gaia DR2 for visual co-moving binary companions to stars hosting exoplanets and brown dwarfs within 200 pc. We found 218 planet hosts
Aldebaran b’s Temperate Past Uncovered in Planet Search Data
The nearby red giant Aldebaran is known to host a gas giant planetary companion from decades of ground-based spectroscopic radial velocity measurements. Using Gaussian Process-based Continuous
A Sanity Check for Planets around Evolved Stars
We present the radius–period plot for exoplanet candidates around giant stars. The diagram contains two distinct regions. While planets of giants with radii smaller than 21 R ⊙ exhibit a wide range
Eccentric Companions to Kepler-448b and Kepler-693b: Clues to the Formation of Warm Jupiters
I report the discovery of non-transiting close companions to two transiting warm Jupiters (WJs), Kepler-448/KOI-12b (orbital period , radius ) and Kepler-693/KOI-824b ( , ), via dynamical modeling of
A photospheric and chromospheric activity analysis of the quiescent retrograde-planet host ν Octantis A
The single-lined spectroscopic binary ν Octantis provided evidence of the first conjectured circumstellar planet demanding an orbit retrograde to the stellar orbits. The planet-like behaviour is now
