3 False Positives Detected for Exoplanets

Asteroseismology of eclipsing binary stars using Kepler and the HERMES spectrograph


Schmid et al


We introduce our PhD project in which we focus on pulsating stars in eclipsing binaries. The combination of high-precision Kepler photometry with high-resolution HERMES spectroscopy allows for detailed descriptions of our sample of target stars. We report here the detection of three false positives by radial velocity measurements.
