A Study of Companions Around Giant Stars

Gaël Ottoni, Stéphane Udry, Damien Ségransan and the CORALIE Team

The CORALIE Radial-Velocity Search for Companions Around Giant Stars  is a 12 years old, on-going program following a sample of 645 FGK giant stars in the southern hemisphere. Our main goals are to characterize the stellar hosts, detect and study orbiting companions in order to shed light on planetary formation and evolution. Some preliminary results, including new planet candidates, will be displayed on the poster alongside questions of interests.
