Red dwarf stellar rotation vs RV habitable zone planet detection

Post by Lazarus on 13th April 2016, 4:47 pm

Two papers about the problems of stellar rotation and habitable zone planet detection. Unfortunately M1-M4 dwarfs have rotation periods similar to habitable zone planets, which complicates the detection of HZ planets around such stars.
