 要:
Rob Wittenmyer will give an update on three major exoplanetary science initiatives being pursued by Australian-based planet-search teams. In addition to the AAPS, he will describe the Pan-Pacific Planet Search, a radial-velocity survey of Southern hemisphere evolved, intermediate-mass stars using the 3.9m Anglo-Australian Telescope. He then will describe a plan for Minerva: an installation of four 0.7m telescopes feeding a high-resolution spectrograph, sited at Mt Hopkins in Arizona. In addition, a Southern hemisphere Minerva could be used to follow up on objects of interest from Antarctic telescopes such as the Chinese AST-3. Finally, he will present the results of their recent series of papers in which they have performed extensive suites of dynamical simulations to test the veracity of proposed multiple-planet systems.
