Characterizing undetected stellar companions with combined data sets.


Abstract (from CDS):

Binaries play a critical role in the formation, evolution, and fundamental properties of planets, stars, and stellar associations. Observational studies in these areas often include a mix of observations aimed at detecting or ruling out the presence of stellar companions. Rarely can nondetections rule out all possible binary configurations. Here we present MOLUSC, our framework for constraining the range of properties of unseen companions using astrometric, imaging, and velocity information. We showcase the use of MOLUSC on a number of systems, ruling out stellar false positives in the signals of HIP 67522b and DS Tuc Ab. We also demonstrate how MOLUSC could be used to predict the number of missing companions in a stellar sample using the ZEIT sample of young planet hosts. Although our results are not significant, with a larger sample, MOLUSC could be used to see if close-in planets are less common in young binary systems, as is seen for their older counterparts.
