Additional planets at HD 5319, HD 11506 and newly announced exoplanet from N2K Consortium

Newly-Discovered Planets Orbiting HD 5319, HD 11506, HD 75784 and HD 10442 from the N2K Consortium

Initially designed to discover short-period planets, the N2K campaign has since evolved to discover new worlds at large separations from their host stars. Detecting such worlds will help determine the giant planet occurrence at semi-major axes beyond the ice line, where gas giants are thought to mostly form. Here we report four newly-discovered gas giant planets (with minimum masses ranging from 0.4 to 2.1 MJup) orbiting stars monitored as part of the N2K program. Two of these planets orbit stars already known to host planets: HD 5319 and HD 11506. The remaining discoveries reside in previously-unknown planetary systems: HD 10442 and HD 75784. The refined orbital period of the inner planet orbiting HD 5319 is 641 days. The newly-discovered outer planet orbits in 886 days. The large masses combined with the proximity to a 4:3 mean motion resonance make this system a challenge to explain with current formation and migration theories. HD 11506 has one confirmed planet, and here we confirm a second. The outer planet has an orbital period of 1627.5 days, and the newly-discovered inner planet orbits in 223.6 days. A planet has also been discovered orbiting HD 75784 with an orbital period of 341.7 days. There is evidence for a longer period signal; however, several more years of observations are needed to put tight constraints on the Keplerian parameters for the outer planet. Lastly, an additional planet has been detected orbiting HD 10442 with a period of 1043 days.

It's good to see this result strengthened.

From the paper...
However, their Bayesian analysis is roughly 48 σ from the period we obtain with our extended data set.
A bit of a difference there...

Well, the period difference is probably due to aliasing.

Anyway, I'm rather surprised to see an N2K paper still under the N2K name! I woulda thought the prject would have been merged with the broader Keck search by this point. Nevertheless, it's still discovering things as much as could be hoped. The three latter systems are pretty typical giant planet systems, but HD 5319's 4:3 resonance is valuable - given how many papers studying HD 200964's similar resonance there have been, I expect there will be several for this one too.
