We present rotational and radial velocities for a sample of 761 giants selected from the Hipparcos Catalogue to lie within 100 pc of the Sun. Our original goal was to examine stellar rotation in field giants using spectroscopic line broadening to look for evidence of excess rotation that could be attributed to planets that were engulfed as the parent stars expanded. Thus we were obliged to investigate other sources of line broadening, including tidal coupling in close binaries and… Expand
Surface rotation of Kepler red giant stars
Kepler allows the measurement of starspot variability in a large sample of field red giants for the first time. With a new method that combines autocorrelation and wavelet decomposition, we measureExpand
The spectroscopic orbit of the K-giant binary γ Canis Minoris
We have determined an improved orbit for the bright, evolved, double lined binary γ Canis Minoris. The system has an orbital period of 389.31 days and an eccentricity of 0.2586. We have revised theExpand
The Frequency of Rapid Rotation Among K Giant Stars
We present the results of a search for unusually rapidly rotating giant stars in a large sample of K giants ({approx}1300 stars) that had been spectroscopically monitored as potential targets for theExpand
LONG-PERIOD VARIATIONS IN THE RADIAL VELOCITY OF SPECTROSCOPIC BINARY M GIANT μ URSAE MAJORIS
We report that the spectroscopic binary μ Ursae Majoris (μ UMa) has secondary RV variations of 471.2 days in addition to those of 230.0 days already known. Keplerian orbit analysis yields stellarExpand
The Radial Velocity Variability of the K-giant γ Draconis: Stellar Variability Masquerading as a Planet
We present precise stellar radial velocity measurements of Gamma Dra taken from 2003 to 2017. The data from 2003 to 2011 show coherent, long-lived variations with a period of 702 d. These variationsExpand
Using binaries containing giants to constrain theories of stellar and tidal evolution
Aims. Investigations of stellar and tidal evolution of binary stars with giant components are rare. In this paper, we will investigate such features in three binary systems for which at least oneExpand
Search for kinematic siblings of the sun based on data from the XHIP catalog
From the XHIP catalogue, we have selected 1872 F-G-K stars with relative parallax measurement errors <20% and absolute values of their space velocities relative to the Sun <15 km s−1. For all theseExpand
A planetary companion around the K giant Corona Borealis
Aims. Our aim is to search for and study the origin of the low-amplitude and long-periodic radial velocity (RV) variations in K giants. Methods. We present high-resolution RV measurements of K2Expand
Planetary companion in K giant Sigma Persei
We report the detection of an exoplanet candidate in orbit around σ Persei from a radial velocity (RV) survey. The system exhibits periodic RV variations of 579.8 ± 2.4 days. The purpose of theExpand
The properties of planets around giant stars
Context: More than 50 exoplanets have been found around giant stars, revealing different properties when compared to planets orbiting solar-type stars. In particular, they are Super-Jupiters and areExpand
