We present an updated study of the planets known to orbit 55 Cancri A using 1 418 high-precision radial velocity observations from four observatories (Lick, Keck, Hobby-Eberly Telescope, Harlan J. Smith Telescope) and transit time/durations for the inner-most planet, 55 Cancri ‘e’ (Winn et al. 2011). We provide the first posterior sample for the masses and orbital parameters based on self-consistent N-body orbital solutions for the 55 Cancri planets, all of which are dynamically stable (for at… CONTINUE READING
