[Abstract]: We report the detection of a second exoplanet orbiting the G6V dwarf HD73526. This second planet has an orbital period of 377 d, putting it in a 2:1 resonance with the previously known exoplanet, the orbital period for which is updated to 188 d. Dynamical modeling of the combined system allows solution for a self-consistent set of orbital elements for both components. HD73526 is the fourth exoplanetary system (of a total of 18 systems with 2 or more components currently known) to have components detected in 2:1 resonance. Finding such a large fraction of multiple planets (more than 20 per cent) in 2:1 resonance strongly suggests that orbital migration, halted by stabilisation in a trapping resonance, plays an important role in the evolution of exoplanets in multiple planet systems.
