    "The magnetic personality of stars"
Abstract: The detection extra-solar planets through radial-velocity searches is likely limited by the intrinsic magnetic activity of the host stars. The correlated magnetic noise that arises from their natural radial-velocity variability (jitter) can easily mimic and hide the orbital signals of super-Earth and Earth-mass exoplanets. The modeling of the RV jitter is thus essential to extrasolar planets searches. I will present here a technique we can use to filter out the RV activity jitter of low-mass star as well as what we currently know about the magnetic field of cool stars
