We derive detailed theoretical models for 1074 nearby stars from the SPOCS (Spectroscopic Properties of Cool Stars) Catalog. The California and Carnegie Planet Search has obtained high-quality (R 70,000-90,000, S/N 300-500) echelle spectra of over 1000 nearby stars taken with the Hamilton spectrograph at Lick Observatory, the HIRES spectrograph at Keck, and UCLES at the Anglo Australian Observatory. A uniform analysis of the high-resolution spectra has yielded precise stellar parameters (Teff… Expand
Relationship between giant planet frequency and stellar metallicity
We describe results from two independent analyses of the [Fe/H] abundance of stars in two separate planet search programs. For the Keck, AAT and Lick (KAL) planet search program, we determinedExpand
Bayesian analysis of ages, masses and distances to cool stars with non-LTE spectroscopic parameters
For studies of Galactic evolution, the accurate characterization of stars in terms of their evolutionary stage and population membership is of fundamental importance. A standard approach relies onExpand
Determining basic characteristics of stars from evolutionary computations
A technique for determining a star’s radius from its atmospheric characteristics (effective temperature, surface gravity, and metallicity) is realized based on modernmodel computations of the stellarExpand
Nearby stars of the Galactic disc and halo – IV
The Milky Way Galaxy has an age of about 13 billion years. Solar-type stars evolve all the long way to the realm of degenerate objects on essentially this time-scale. This, as well as the particularExpand
DIRECTLY DETERMINED LINEAR RADII AND EFFECTIVE TEMPERATURES OF EXOPLANET HOST STARS
We present interferometric angular sizes for 12 stars with known planetary companions, for comparison with 28 additional main-sequence stars not known to host planets. For all objects we estimateExpand
Discovery of a stellar companion to the nearby solar-analogue HD 104304
Sun-like stars are promising candidates to host exoplanets and are often included in exoplanet surveys by radial velocity (RV) and direct imaging. In this paper we report on the detection of aExpand
A BLIND SEARCH FOR MAGNETOSPHERIC EMISSIONS FROM PLANETARY COMPANIONS TO NEARBY SOLAR-TYPE STARS
This paper reports a blind search for magnetospheric emissions from planets around nearby stars. Young stars are likely to have much stronger stellar winds than the Sun, and because planetaryExpand
Characterizing stellar parameters from high-resolution spectra of main sequence cool stars. I. The G2V–K2V stars
The goal of the present study is to construct, test, and validate a high-resolution synthetic spectral library using PHOENIX model atmospheres and develop a reliable tool to estimate stellarExpand
The Gemini NICI Planet-Finding Campaign: The Frequency of Giant Planets around Young B and A Stars
We have carried out high contrast imaging of 70 young, nearby B and A stars to search for brown dwarf and planetary companions as part of the Gemini NICI Planet-Finding Campaign. Our surveyExpand
SIX PLANETS ORBITING HD 219134
We present new, high-precision Doppler radial velocity (RV) data sets for the nearby K3V star HD 219134. The data include 175 velocities obtained with the HIRES Spectrograph at the Keck I Telescope,Expand
