  • The census of stellar and substellar companions of nearby stars is largely incomplete, in particular towards the low mass brown dwarf and long-period exoplanets. It is however of fundamental importance for stellar and planetary formation and evolution mechanisms. We aim at characterizing the presence of physical companions of stellar and substellar mass orbiting nearby stars. Orbiting secondary bodies influence the proper motion (PM) of their parent star. Using the Hipparcos (Hip) and Gaia DR2… CONTINUE READING
