HD 202206

Title: HD 202206 : A Circumbinary Brown Dwarf System
Author: G. Fritz Benedict, Thomas E. Harrison

With Hubble Space Telescope Fine Guidance Sensor astrometry and previously published radial velocity measures we explore the exoplanetary system HD 202206. Our modelling results in a parallax, pi_{abs}=21.960.12 milliseconds of arc, a mass for HD 202206 B of MB=0.089^{ +0.007}_{-0.006} Msun, and a mass for HD 202206 c of Mc=17.9 ^{ +2.9}_{-1.8} MJup. HD 202206 is a nearly face-on G+M binary orbited by a brown dwarf. The system architecture we determine supports past assertions that stability requires a 5:1 mean motion resonance (we find a period ratio, P_c/P_B=4.920.04) and coplanarity (we find a mutual inclination, Phi = 6 \arcdeg 2 \arcdeg).

Long-term precise Doppler measurements with the CORALIE spectrograph reveal the presence of a second planet orbiting the solar-type star HD202206.
The radial-velocity combined fit yields companion masses of m_2\sini = 17.4 Jupiter masses and 2.44 Jupiter masses, semi-major axes of a = 0.83 AU and 2.55 AU, and eccentricities of e = 0.43 and 0.27, respectively.
A dynamical analysis of the system further shows a 5/1 mean motion resonance between the two planets.
This system is of particular interest since the inner planet is within the brown-dwarf limits while the outer one is much less massive.
Therefore, either the inner planet formed simultaneously in the protoplanetary disk as a superplanet, or the outer Jupiter-like planet formed in a circumbinary disk. The researchers believe this singular planetary system will provide important constraints on planetary formation and migration scenarios.
