K2-99: a subgiant hosting a transiting warm Jupiter in an eccentric orbit and a long-period companion
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2017

We report the discovery from K2 of a transiting planet in an 18.25-d, eccentric (0.19 +/- 0.04) orbit around K2-99, an 11th magnitude subgiant in Virgo. We confirm the planetary nature of the companion with radial velocities, and determine that the star is a metal-rich ([ Fe/H] = 0.20 +/- 0.05) subgiant, with mass 1.60(+0.14) (-0.10) M (circle dot) and radius 3.1 +/- 0.1 R-circle dot. The planet has a mass of 0.97 +/- 0.09 M-Jup and a radius 1.29 +/- 0.05 R-Jup. A measured systemic radial acceleration of -2.12 +/- 0.04 ms(- 1) d(- 1) offers compelling evidence for the existence of a third body in the system, perhaps a brown dwarf orbiting with a period of several hundred days.
