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
A closely packed system of low-mass, low-density planets transiting Kepler-11
TLDR
Kepler spacecraft observations of a single Sun-like star are reported that reveal six transiting planets, five with orbital periods between 10 and 47 days and a sixth planet with a longer period, among the smallest for which mass and size have both been measured. Expand
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
Kepler-16: A Transiting Circumbinary Planet
TLDR
The detection of a planet whose orbit surrounds a pair of low-mass stars, comparable to Saturn in mass and size and on a nearly circular 229-day orbit around its two parent stars, suggests that the planet formed within a circumbinary disk. Expand
KEPLER'S FIRST ROCKY PLANET: KEPLER-10b*
NASA's Kepler Mission uses transit photometry to determine the frequency of Earth-size planets in or near the habitable zone of Sun-like stars. The mission reached a milestone toward meeting thatExpand
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
Transiting circumbinary planets Kepler-34 b and Kepler-35 b
TLDR
The observed rate of circumbinary planets in this sample implies that more than ∼1% of close binary stars have giant planets in nearly coplanar orbits, yielding a Galactic population of at least several million. Expand
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
Kepler-47: A Transiting Circumbinary Multiplanet System
TLDR
The detection of Kepler-47 establishes that close binary stars can host complete planetary systems, and reveals two small planets orbiting a pair of two low-mass stars. Expand
