In the last decade many kinematic groups of young stars (< 100 Myr) were discovered in the solar neighbourhood. Since the most interesting period of planet formation overlaps with the age of these groups, their well dated members are attractive targets for exoplanet searches by direct imaging. We combined astrometric, photometric and X-ray data, and applied strict selection criteria to explore the stellar content of five nearby moving groups. We identified more than 100 potential new candidate…

Search for associations containing young stars (SACY). VII. New stellar and substellar candidate members in the young associations
Context. The young associations offer us one of the best opportunities to study the properties of young stellar and substellar objects and to directly image planets thanks to their proximity (<200
Kinematic Identification of Young Nearby Moving Groups from a Sample of Chromospherically Active Stars in the RAVE Catalog
The purpose of this study is the identification of young ($1< age < 100$ Myr), nearby ($d \leqslant100$ pc) moving groups (YNMGs) through their kinematic signature. YNMGs could be the result of the
ACRONYM. III. Radial Velocities for 336 Candidate Young Low-mass Stars in the Solar Neighborhood, Including 77 Newly Confirmed Young Moving Group Members
Young, low-mass stars in the solar neighborhood are vital for completing the mass function for nearby, young coeval groups, establishing a more complete census for evolutionary studies, and providing
All-sky Co-moving Recovery Of Nearby Young Members (ACRONYM). II. The β Pictoris Moving Group
We confirm 66 low-mass stellar and brown dwarf systems (K7-M9) plus 19 visual or spectroscopic companions of the beta Pictoris Moving Group (BPMG). Of these, 41 are new discoveries, increasing the
The young binary HD 102077: Orbit, spectral type, kinematics, and moving group membership
The K-type binary star HD 102077 was proposed as a candidate member of the TW Hydrae Association (TWA) which is a young (5 15 Myr) moving group in close proximity ( 50 pc) to the solar system. The
Is multiplicity universal? : a study of multiplicity in the young moving groups
The young moving groups are collections of nearby (<200 pc), young (5-150 Myr) premain sequence stars; these stars offer us one of the best opportunities to characterise stellar multiplicity,
BANYAN. XII. New Members of Nearby Young Associations from GAIA–Tycho Data
We present a search for stellar members of young associations within 150 pc of the Sun based on Gaia-Tycho and an updated version of the BANYAN $\Sigma$ software to determine Bayesian membership
Search for associations containing young stars (SACY)
Context. Nearby young associations offer one of the best opportunities for a detailed study of the properties of young stellar and substellar objects thanks to their proximity (<200 pc) and age
BANYAN. III. Radial Velocity, Rotation, and X-Ray Emission of Low-mass Star Candidates in Nearby Young Kinematic Groups
Based on high-resolution spectra obtained with PHOENIX at Gemini-South, CRIRES at VLT-UT1, and ESPaDOnS at the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope, we present new measurements of the radial and projected
The Multiplicity of M-Dwarfs in Young Moving Groups
We image 104 newly identified low-mass (mostly M-dwarf) pre-main sequence members of nearby young moving groups with Magellan Adaptive Optics (MagAO) and identify 27 binaries with instantaneous

COOL YOUNG STARS IN THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE: β PICTORIS AND AB DORADUS MOVING GROUP CANDIDATES
As part of our continuing effort to identify new, low-mass members of nearby, young moving groups (NYMGs), we present a list of young, low-mass candidates in the northern hemisphere. We used our
Bayesian analysis to identify new star candidates in nearby young stellar kinematic groups
We present a new method based on a Bayesian analysis to identify new members of nearby young kinematic groups. The analysis minimally takes into account the position, proper motion, magnitude, and
