Terrestrial Planet Occurrence Rates for the Kepler GK Dwarf Sample
We measure planet occurrence rates using the planet candidates discovered by the Q1-Q16 Kepler pipeline search. This study examines planet occurrence rates for the Kepler GK dwarf target sample for
PLANETARY CANDIDATES OBSERVED BY Kepler. VIII. A FULLY AUTOMATED CATALOG WITH MEASURED COMPLETENESS AND RELIABILITY BASED ON DATA RELEASE 25.
TLDR
The Robovetter and the metrics it uses to decide which TCEs are called planet candidates in the DR25 KOI catalog are discussed and a value called the disposition score is discussed which provides an easy way to select a more reliable, albeit less complete, sample of candidates.
Planetary Candidates Observed By Kepler. Vi. Planet Sample from Q1-Q16 (47 Months)
We provide updates to the Kepler planet candidate sample based upon nearly two years of high-precision photometry (i.e., Q1-Q8). From an initial list of nearly 13,400 threshold crossing events, 480
Planetary Candidates Observed by \ik V: Planet Sample from Q1-Q12 (36 Months)
We provide updates to the Kepler planet candidate sample based upon nearly two years of high-precision photometry (i.e., Q1-Q8). From an initial list of nearly 13,400 Threshold Crossing Events
The Occurrence Rate of Earth Analog Planets Orbiting Sunlike Stars
Kepler is a space telescope that searches Sun-like stars for planets. Its major goal is to determine {\eta}_Earth, the fraction of Sunlike stars that have planets like Earth. When a planet 'transits'
Planetary Candidates Observed by Kepler. VII. The First Fully Uniform Catalog Based on The Entire 48 Month Dataset (Q1-Q17 DR24)
TLDR
This is the first fully automated catalog, employing robotic vetting procedures to uniformly evaluate every periodic signal detected by the Q1-Q17 Data Release 24 (DR24) Kepler pipeline, finding that its robotic vetting is overall comparable to, and in most cases is superior to, the human vetting procedures employed by past catalogs.
Discovery and Validation of Kepler-452b: A 1.6 R⨁ Super Earth Exoplanet in the Habitable Zone of a G2 Star
We report on the discovery and validation of Kepler-452b, a transiting planet identified by a search through the 4 years of data collected by NASA's Kepler Mission. This possibly rocky
Detection of Potential Transit Signals in 17 Quarters of Kepler Data: Results of the Final Kepler Mission Transiting Planet Search (DR25)
We present results of the final Kepler Data Processing Pipeline search for transiting planet signals in the full 17-quarter primary mission data set. The search includes a total of 198,709 stellar
Taking the Measure of the Universe: Precision Astrometry with SIM Planetquest (Preprint)
Abstract : Precision astrometry at microarcsecond accuracy has application to a wide range of astrophysical problems. This paper is a study of the science questions that can be addressed using an
Multiscale Systematic Error Correction via Wavelet-Based Bandsplitting in Kepler Data
TLDR
To further minimize the number of targets for which PDC-MAP fails to perform admirably, a new method is developed, called multiscale MAP, or msMAP, utilizing an overcomplete discrete wavelet transform.
