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

A closely packed system of low-mass, low-density planets transiting Kepler-11
When an extrasolar planet passes in front of (transits) its star, its radius can be measured from the decrease in starlight and its orbital period from the time between transits. Multiple planetsExpand

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

Transiting circumbinary planets Kepler-34 b and Kepler-35 b
Most Sun-like stars in the Galaxy reside in gravitationally bound pairs of stars (binaries). Although long anticipated, the existence of a ‘circumbinary planet’ orbiting such a pair of normal starsExpand

Kepler-36: A Pair of Planets with Neighboring Orbits and Dissimilar Densities
So Close and So Different In our solar system, the rocky planets have very distinct orbits from those of the gas giants. Carter et al. (p. 556, published online 21 June) report on a planetary systemExpand

Kepler-47: A Transiting Circumbinary Multiplanet System
A Pair of Planets Around a Pair of Stars Most of the planets we know about orbit a single star; however, most of the stars in our galaxy are not single. Based on data from the Kepler space telescope,Expand

Characterizing the Cool KOIs. III. KOI 961: A Small Star with Large Proper Motion and Three Small Planets
We present the characterization of the star KOI 961, an M dwarf with transit signals indicative of three short-period exoplanets, originally discovered by the Kepler Mission. We proceed by comparingExpand

KOI-126: A Triply Eclipsing Hierarchical Triple with Two Low-Mass Stars
The Kepler telescope detected a triple stellar system and reveals details of the structure of low-mass stars. The Kepler spacecraft has been monitoring the light from 150,000 stars in its primaryExpand

The Neptune-sized Circumbinary Planet Kepler-38b
We discuss the discovery and characterization of the circumbinary planet Kepler-38b. The stellar binary is single-lined, with a period of 18.8 days, and consists of a moderately evolved main-sequenceExpand

We consider the problem of fitting a parametric model to time-series data that are afflicted by correlated noise. The noise is represented by a sum of two stationary Gaussian processes: one that isExpand
