Jovian planets at HD 96167, independent confirmation of HD 16175.


Old, Rich, and Eccentric: Two Jovian Planets Orbiting Evolved Metal-Rich Stars
http://arxiv.org/abs/0904.2786

Abstract wrote:We present Doppler radial velocity measurements of two stars observed as part of the Lick Subgiants Planet Search and the Keck N2K survey. Variations in the radial velocities of both stars reveal the presence of Jupiter-mass exoplanets in highly eccentric orbits. HD 16175 is a G0 subgiant from the Lick Subgiants Planet Search, orbited by a planet having a minimum mass of 4.4 M_Jup, in an eccentric (e = 0.59), 2.71-yr orbit. HD 96167 is a G5 subgiant from the N2K ("Next 2000") program at Keck Observatory, orbited by a planet having a minimum mass of 0.68 M_Jup, in an eccentric (e = 0.71), 1.366-yr orbit. Both stars are relatively massive (M_star = 1.3 M_sun) and are very metal rich ([Fe/H] > +0.3). We describe our methods for measuring the stars' radial velocity variations and photometric stability.
