We report the detection of three new low-mass planets from the Anglo-Australian Planet Search. The three parent stars of these planets are chromospherically quiet main-sequence G dwarfs with metallicities ranging from roughly solar (HD 117618 and HD 208487) to metal enriched (HD 102117). The orbital periods range from 20.8 to 130 days, the minimum masses from roughly 0.5MSat to 0.5MJup, and the eccentricities from 0.08 to 0.37, with the planet in the smallest orbit (HD 102117) having the… Expand
The Anglo-Australian planet search. XX. A solitary ice-giant planet orbiting HD 102365
We present 12 years of precision Doppler data for the very nearby G3 star HD?102365, which reveals the presence of a Neptune-like planet with a 16.0 M Earth minimum mass in a 122.1 day orbit. VeryExpand
The frequency of low-mass exoplanets
We report first results from the Anglo-Australian Telescope Rocky Planet Search—an intensive, high-precision Doppler planet search targeting low-mass exoplanets in contiguous 48 night observingExpand
High-eccentricity planets from the Anglo-Australian Planet Search
We report Doppler measurements of the stars HD 187085 and HD 20782 which indicate two high eccentricity low-mass companions to the stars. We find HD 187085 has a Jupiter-mass companion with a �1000 dExpand
Precision Doppler velocity measurements from the Anglo-Australian Telescope reveal a planet with a 9.4 ± 0.4 year period orbiting the M1.5 dwarf GJ 832. Within measurement uncertainty the orbit isExpand
New planets around Three G Dwarfs
Doppler velocity measurements from the Anglo-Australian Planet Search reveal planetary mass companions to HD 23127, HD 159868, and a possible second planetary companion to HD 154857. These stars areExpand
The Anglo-Australian planet search. XXI. A gas-giant planet in a one year orbit and the habitability of gas-giant satellites
We have detected the Doppler signature of a gas-giant exoplanet orbiting the star HD 38283, in an eccentric orbit with a period of almost exactly one year (P = 363.2 ± 1.6 d, m sin i = 0.34 ± 0.02 MExpand
Selection functions in doppler planet searches
We present a preliminary analysis of the sensitivity of Anglo-Australian Planet Search data to the orbital parameters of extrasolar planets. To do so, we have developed new tools for the automaticExpand
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 ofExpand
On the Frequency of Jupiter Analogs
The Anglo-Australian Planet Search has now accumulated 12 years of radial-velocity data with long-term instrumental precision better than 3 m s–1. In this paper, we expand on earlier simulation work,Expand
The impact of stellar oscillations on doppler velocity planet searches
We present a quantitative investigation of the effect of stellar oscillations on Doppler velocity planet searches. Using data from four asteroseismological observation campaigns, we find a power-lawExpand
