Architecture and Dynamics of Kepler's Candidate Multiple Transiting Planet Systems
About one-third of the ~1200 transiting planet candidates detected in the first four months of Kepler data are members of multiple candidate systems. There are 115 target stars with two candidateExpand

Characteristics of planetary candidates observed by Kepler, II: Analysis of the first four months of data
On 2011 February 1 the Kepler mission released data for 156,453 stars observed from the beginning of the science observations on 2009 May 2 through September 16. There are 1235 planetary candidatesExpand

Planet Occurrence within 0.25 AU of Solar-Type Stars from Kepler
We report the distribution of planets as a function of planet radius, orbital period, and stellar effective temperature for orbital periods less than 50 days around solar-type (GK) stars. TheseExpand

Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission VIII. CoRoT-7b: the first Super-Earth with measured radius
Aims. We report the discovery of very shallow (ΔF/F ≈ 3.4× 10 −4 ), periodic dips in the light curve of an active V = 11.7 G9V star observed by the CoRoT satellite, which we interpret as caused by aExpand

Kepler-16: A Transiting Circumbinary Planet
An exoplanet has been observed, comparable in size and mass to Saturn, that orbits a pair of stars. We report the detection of a planet whose orbit surrounds a pair of low-mass stars. Data from theExpand

Detection of transits of the nearby hot Neptune GJ 436 b
This Letter reports on the photometric detection of transits of the Neptune-mass planet orbiting the nearby M-dwarf star GJ 436. It is by far the closest, smallest, and least massive transitingExpand

An abundance of small exoplanets around stars with a wide range of metallicities
The abundance of heavy elements (metallicity) in the photospheres of stars similar to the Sun provides a ‘fossil’ record of the chemical composition of the initial protoplanetary disk. Metal-richExpand

Architecture of Kepler's multi-transiting systems. II. New investigations with twice as many candidates
We report on the orbital architectures of Kepler systems having multiple-planet candidates identified in the analysis of data from the first six quarters of Kepler data and reported by Batalha et al.Expand

PLANETARY CANDIDATES OBSERVED BY KEPLER. III. ANALYSIS OF THE FIRST 16 MONTHS OF DATA
New transiting planet candidates are identified in 16 months (2009 May-2010 September) of data from the Kepler spacecraft. Nearly 5000 periodic transit-like signals are vetted against astrophysicalExpand

Masses, Radii, and Orbits of Small Kepler Planets: The Transition From Gaseous to Rocky Planets
We report on the masses, sizes, and orbits of the planets orbiting 22 Kepler stars. There are 49 planet candidates around these stars, including 42 detected through transits and 7 revealed by preciseExpand
