Aims. We present revised basic astrophysical stellar parameters: the masses, luminosities, ages, and radii for 342 stars from the PennState-Toruń Centre for Astronomy Planet Search. For 327 stars the atmospheric parameters were already available in the literature. For the other 15 objects we also present spectroscopic atmospheric parameters: the effective temperatures, surface gravities, and iron abundances.
Methods. Spectroscopic atmospheric parameters were obtained with a standard spectroscopic analysis procedure, using ARES and MOOG, or TGVIT codes. To refine the stellar masses, ages, and luminosities, we applied a Bayesian method.
Results. The revised stellar masses for 342 stars and their uncertainties are generally lower than previous estimates. Atmospheric parameters for 13 objects are determined here for the first time.
Key words: stars: low-mass / stars: late-type / stars: fundamental parameters / stars: statistics
