|Old, Rich, and Eccentric: Two Jovian Planets Orbiting Evolved Metal-Rich Stars|
We present radial velocity measurements of two stars observed as part ofthe Lick Subgiants Planet Search and the Keck N2K survey. Variations inthe radial velocities of both stars reveal the presence of Jupiter-massexoplanets in highly eccentric orbits. HD 16175 is a G0 subgiant fromthe Lick Subgiants Planet Search, orbited by a planet having a minimummass of [Fe/H]>+0.3). We describe our methods for measuring thestars' radial velocity variations and photometric stability.
|Effective temperature scale and bolometric corrections from 2MASS photometry|
We present a method to determine effective temperatures, angularsemi-diameters and bolometric corrections for population I and II FGKtype stars based on V and 2MASS IR photometry. Accurate calibration isaccomplished by using a sample of solar analogues, whose averagetemperature is assumed to be equal to the solar effective temperature of5777 K. By taking into account all possible sources of error we estimateassociated uncertainties to better than 1% in effective temperature andin the range 1.0-2.5% in angular semi-diameter for unreddened stars.Comparison of our new temperatures with other determinations extractedfrom the literature indicates, in general, remarkably good agreement.These results suggest that the effective temperaure scale of FGK starsis currently established with an accuracy better than 0.5%-1%. Theapplication of the method to a sample of 10 999 dwarfs in the Hipparcoscatalogue allows us to define temperature and bolometric correction (Kband) calibrations as a function of (V-K), [m/H] and log g. Bolometriccorrections in the V and K bands as a function of T_eff, [m/H] and log gare also given. We provide effective temperatures, angularsemi-diameters, radii and bolometric corrections in the V and K bandsfor the 10 999 FGK stars in our sample with the correspondinguncertainties.
|Stroemgren photometry of F- and G-type stars brighter than V = 9.6. I. UVBY photometry|
Within the framework of a large photometric observing program, designedto investigate the Galaxy's structure and evolution, Hβ photometryis being made for about 9000 stars. As a by-product, supplementary uvbyphotometry has been made. The results are presented in a cataloguecontaining 6924 uvby observations of 6190 stars, all south ofδ=+38deg. The overall internal rms errors of one observation(transformed to the standard system) of a program star in the interval6.5
