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
