Kepler Planet-Detection Mission: Introduction and First Results
Detecting Distant Planets More than 400 planets have been detected outside the solar system, most of which have masses similar to that of the gas giant planet, Jupiter. Borucki et al. (p. 977,Expand

The California-Kepler Survey. III. A Gap in the Radius Distribution of Small Planets*
The size of a planet is an observable property directly connected to the physics of its formation and evolution. We used precise radius measurements from the California-Kepler Survey to study theExpand

Giant Planet Occurrence in the Stellar Mass-Metallicity Plane
Correlations between stellar properties and the occurrence rate of exoplanets can be used to inform the target selection of future planet-search efforts and provide valuable clues about theExpand

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

THE FREQUENCY OF HOT JUPITERS ORBITING NEARBY SOLAR-TYPE STARS*
We determine the fraction of F, G, and K dwarfs in the solar neighborhood hosting hot Jupiters as measured by the California Planet Survey from the Lick and Keck planet searches. We find the rate toExpand

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

HOT STARS WITH HOT JUPITERS HAVE HIGH OBLIQUITIES
We show that stars with transiting planets for which the stellar obliquity is large are preferentially hot (T_(eff) > 6250 K). This could explain why small obliquities were observed in the earliestExpand

Retired A Stars and Their Companions: Exoplanets Orbiting Three Intermediate-Mass Subgiants
We report precision Doppler measurements of three intermediate-mass subgiants obtained at Lick and Keck Observatories. All three stars show variability in their radial velocities consistent withExpand

A New Planet around an M Dwarf: Revealing a Correlation between Exoplanets and Stellar Mass
We report precise Doppler measurements of GJ 317 (M3.5 V) that reveal the presence of a planet with a minimum mass M_P sin i = 1.2 M_(Jup) in an eccentric, 692.9 day orbit. GJ 317 is only the third MExpand

On the Metal Richness of M Dwarfs with Planets
Knowledge of the metallicities of M dwarfs rests predominantly on the photometric calibration of Bonfils and collaborators, which predicts that M dwarfs in the solar neighborhood, including thoseExpand
