Debiased Orbital and Absolute Magnitude Distribution of the Near-Earth Objects
The orbital and absolute magnitude distribution of the near-Earth objects (NEOs) is difficult to compute, partly because only a modest fraction of the entire NEO population has been discovered soExpand

A REVISED EFFECTIVE TEMPERATURE SCALE FOR THE KEPLER INPUT CATALOG
We present a catalog of revised effective temperatures for stars observed in long-cadence mode in the Kepler Input Catalog (KIC). We use Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) griz filters tied to theExpand

Kepler Asteroseismology Program: Introduction and First Results
ABSTRACT.Asteroseismology involves probing the interiors of stars and quantifying their global properties, such as radius and age, through observations of normal modes of oscillation. The technicalExpand

Accurate fundamental parameters and detailed abundance patterns from spectroscopy of 93 solar-type Kepler targets
We present a detailed spectroscopic study of 93 solar-type stars that are targets of the NASA/Kepler mission and provide detailed chemical composition of each target. We find that the overallExpand

The White Dwarf Luminosity Function from Sloan Digital Sky Survey Imaging Data
A sample of white dwarfs is selected from SDSS DR3 imaging data using their reduced proper motions, based on improved proper motions from SDSS plus USNO-B combined data. Numerous SDSS and followupExpand

Weakened magnetic braking as the origin of anomalously rapid rotation in old field stars
A knowledge of stellar ages is crucial for our understanding of many astrophysical phenomena, and yet ages can be difficult to determine. As they become older, stars lose mass and angular momentum,Expand

Stellar Spin-Orbit Misalignment in a Multiplanet System
Misaligned Planets Stars with multiple coplanar planets have not been seen to show misalignments between the equatorial plane of the star and the orbital plane of the planets—a diagnostic of theExpand

The Orbital and Absolute Magnitude Distributions of Main Belt Asteroids
We have developed a model-independent analytical method for debiasing the four-dimensional (a,e,i,H) distribution obtained in any asteroid observation program and have applied the technique toExpand

Kepler-22b: a 2.4 Earth-radius Planet in the Habitable Zone of a Sun-like Star
A search of the time-series photometry from NASA's Kepler spacecraft reveals a transiting planet candidate orbiting the 11th magnitude G5 dwarf KIC 10593626 with a period of 290 days. TheExpand
