Stellar clustering and orbital architecture of planetary systems

Context. Revealing the mechanisms shaping the architecture of planetary systems is crucial for our understanding of their formation and evolution. In this context, it has been recently proposed that

The Pan-Pacific Planet Search. VII. The Most Eccentric Planet Orbiting a Giant Star

Radial velocity observations from three instruments reveal the presence of a 4 MJup planet candidate orbiting the K giant HD 76920. HD 76920b has an orbital eccentricity of 0.856 ± 0.009, making it

Stellar parameters and chemical abundances of 223 evolved stars with and without planets

Aims. We present fundamental stellar parameters, chemical abundances, and rotational velocities for a sample of 86 evolved stars with planets (56 giants; 30 subgiants), and for a control sample of

Emerging trends in metallicity and lithium properties of debris disc stars

Dwarf stars with debris discs and planets appear to be excellent laboratories to study the core accretion theory of planets formation. These systems are however, insufficiently studied. In this paper


The metallicity of exoplanet systems serves as a critical diagnostic of planet formation mechanisms. Previous studies have demonstrated the planet–metallicity correlation for large planets ( R P ≥ 4

Connecting substellar and stellar formation: the role of the host star’s metallicity

Context. Most of our current understanding of the planet formation mechanism is based on the planet metallicity correlation derived mostly from solar-type stars harbouring gas-giant planets. Aims. To

Evolved stars and the origin of abundance trends in planet hosts

Tentative evidence that the properties of evolved stars with planets may be different from what we know for MS hosts has been recently reported. We aim to test whether evolved stars with planets show

The chemical composition of the Sun

We present a redetermination of the solar abundances of all available elements. The new results have very recently been published by Asplund et al. (Annu. Rev. Astron. Astrophys. 47:481, 2009). The

Protostars and Planets VI

Various papers on the formation of stars and planets are presented. The general topics addressed include: molecular clouds and star formation, young stellar objects and circumstellar disks, chemistry

A Planetary-Mass Companion to the K0 Giant HD 17092

We report the discovery of a substellar-mass companion to the K0 giant HD 17092 with the Hobby-Eberly Telescope. In the absence of any correlation of the observed 360 day periodicity with the

Higher depletion of lithium in planet host stars: no age and mass effect

Recent observational work by Israelian et al. has shown that sun-like planet host stars in the temperature range 5700 K < Teff < 5850 K have lithium abundances that are significantly lower than those

Searching for the signatures of terrestrial planets in F-, G-type main-sequence stars

Context. Detailed chemical abundances of volatile and refractory elements have been discussed in the context of terrestrial-planet formation during in past years. Aims. The HARPS-GTO high-precision

A peculiarity of metal-poor stars with planets?

Stars with planets at intermediate metallicities ([–0.7, –0.2] dex) exhibit properties that differ from the general field stars. Thirteen stars with planets reported in this metallicity range belong

The Planet-Metallicity Correlation

We have recently carried out spectral synthesis modeling to determine Teff, log g, v sin i, and [Fe/H] for 1040 FGK-type stars on the Keck, Lick, and Anglo-Australian Telescope planet search


Recent surveys have revealed a lack of close-in planets around evolved stars more massive than 1.2 M☉. Such planets are common around solar-mass stars. We have calculated the orbital evolution of

Extrasolar planet population synthesis - IV. Correlations with disk metallicity, mass, and lifetime

Context. This is the fourth paper in a series showing the results of planet population synthesis calculations. Aims. Our goal in this paper is to systematically study the effects of important disk
