We present spectroscopic rotation velocities (v sin i) for 56 M dwarf stars using high-resolution Hobby–Eberly Telescope High Resolution Spectrograph red spectroscopy. In addition, we have also determined photometric effective temperatures, masses, and metallicities ([Fe/H]) for some stars observed here and in the literature where we could acquire accurate parallax measurements and relevant photometry. We have increased the number of known v sin i values for mid M stars by around 80% and can… 

STARSPOT DISTRIBUTIONS ON FULLY CONVECTIVE M DWARFS: IMPLICATIONS FOR RADIAL VELOCITY PLANET SEARCHES

Since M4.5–M9 dwarfs exhibit equatorial rotation velocities of the order of 10 km s−1 on average, radial velocity surveys targeting this stellar population will likely need to find methods to

INTERMEDIATE RESOLUTION NEAR-INFRARED SPECTROSCOPY OF 36 LATE M DWARFS

We present observations of 36 late M dwarfs obtained with the Keck II/NIRSPEC in the J band at a resolution of ∼20,000. We have measured projected rotational velocities, absolute radial velocities,

The Rotation of M Dwarfs Observed by the Apache Point Galactic Evolution Experiment

We present the results of a spectroscopic analysis of rotational velocities in 714 M-dwarf stars observed by the SDSS-III Apache Point Galactic Evolution Experiment (APOGEE) survey. We use a

A CATALOG OF ROTATION AND ACTIVITY IN EARLY-M STARS

We present a catalog of rotation and chromospheric activity in a sample of 334 M dwarfs of spectral types M0–M4.5 populating the parameter space around the boundary to full convection. We obtain

Search For Gas Giants Around Late-m Dwarfs

We carried out a near-infrared radial velocity search for Jupiter-mass planets around 36 late M dwarfs. This survey was the first of its kind undertaken to monitor radial velocity variability of

Chromospheric activity among fast-rotating M dwarfs in the open cluster NGC 2516

We report radial velocities (RVs), projected equatorial velocities (v sini) and Ca II triplet (CaT) chromospheric activity indices for 237 late-K to mid-M candidate members of the young open cluster

A 3D SEARCH FOR COMPANIONS TO 12 NEARBY M DWARFS

We present a carefully vetted equatorial (±30 ° ?> decl.) sample of all known single (within 4″) mid M dwarfs (M2.5 V–M8.0 V) extending out to 10 pc; their proximity and low masses make them ideal

Precise Radial Velocities of Cool Low-mass Stars with iSHELL

The coolest dwarf stars are intrinsically faint at visible wavelengths and exhibit rotationally modulated stellar activity from spots and plages. It is advantageous to observe these stars at

Chromospheric activities and kinematics for solar type dwarfs and subgiants : analysis of the activity distribution and the AVR

Aims. In this work we present chromospheric activity indices, kinematics, radial-velocities, and rotational velocities for more than 850 FGK-type dwarfs and subgiant stars in the southern hemisphere

THE SOLAR NEIGHBORHOOD. XXXVII. THE MASS–LUMINOSITY RELATION FOR MAIN-SEQUENCE M DWARFS

We present a mass–luminosity relation (MLR) for red dwarfs spanning a range of masses from 0.62 to the end of the stellar main sequence at 0.08 . The relation is based on 47 stars for which dynamical
