Advances in exoplanet science from Kepler
TLDR
Kepler has provided us with the authors' first look at the typical characteristics of planets and planetary systems for planets with sizes as small as, and orbits as large as, those of Earth.
Exploring exoplanet populations with NASA’s Kepler Mission

TLDR
The Kepler Mission has made significant progress measuring the prevalence of exoplanets orbiting within one astronomical unit of their host stars in support of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s long-term goal of finding habitable environments beyond the solar system.
The Occurrence and Architecture of Exoplanetary Systems
The basic geometry of the Solar System—the shapes, spacings, and orientations of the planetary orbits—has long been a subject of fascination as well as inspiration for planet-formation theories. For
Low-eccentricity migration of ultra-short-period planets in multiplanet systems

Recent studies suggest that ultra-short-period planets (USPs), Earth-sized planets with sub-day periods, constitute a statistically distinct sub-sample of Kepler planets: USPs have smaller radii
A Systematic Search for Transiting Planets in the K2 Data
TLDR
This work applies a method for searching K2 light curves for evidence of exoplanets by simultaneously fitting for these systematics and the transit signals of interest, and presents posterior distributions on the properties of each system based strictly on the transit observables.
Survivability of moon systems around ejected gas giants
We examine the effects that planetary encounters have on the moon systems of ejected gas giant planets. We conduct a suite of numerical simulations of planetary systems containing three
Doppler Monitoring of five K2 Transiting Planetary Systems
In an effort to measure the masses of planets discovered by the NASA K2 mission, we have conducted precise Doppler observations of five stars with transiting planets. We present the results of a
On the Orbital Spacing Pattern of Kepler Multiple-planet Systems
The Kepler space mission has detected a large number of exoplanets in multiple transiting planet systems. Previous studies found that these Kepler multiple planet systems exhibit an intra-system
A tale of planet formation: from dust to planets
The characterization of exoplanets and their birth protoplanetary disks have enormously advanced in the last decade. Benefited from that, our global understanding of the planet formation has been

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.
Kepler Planet-Detection Mission: Introduction and First Results
TLDR
The planetary findings derived from the first six weeks of observations with the Kepler mission are summarized, which include the detection of five new exoplanets, which confirm the existence of planets with densities substantially lower than those predicted for gas giant planets.
A SURVEY FOR VERY SHORT-PERIOD PLANETS IN THE KEPLER DATA
We conducted a search for very short-period transiting objects in the publicly available Kepler data set. Our preliminary survey has revealed four planetary candidates, all with orbital periods less

Since the discovery of Kepler-10, the system has received considerable interest because it contains a small, rocky planet which orbits the star in less than a day. The system's parameters, announced
