The GAPS programme with HARPS-N@TNG. The M dwarf sample

Speaker: Jesus Maldonado Prado (INAF- Osservatorio di Palermo)

Date and time: 2016-02-22 11:30

Within the framework of GAPS: Global Architecture of Planetary Systems,a project at the Telescopio Nazionale Galileo, our team has started an observational monitoring of nearby, early-type, M dwarfs, using HARPS-N to search for small planets around low-mass stars. In this contribution we present a brief summary of the project status, our methodology to determine accurate stellar parameters for these stars, as well as our efforts to understand magnetic activity in M dwarfs taking advantage of the high-quality HARPS-N spectra.
