We characterize the radii and masses of the star and planets in the Kepler-59 system, as well as their orbital parameters. The star parameters are determined through a standard spectroscopic analysis, resulting in a mass of $1.359\pm 0.155\,M_\odot$ and a radius of $1.367\pm 0.078\,R_\odot$. The planetary radii obtained are $1.5\pm 0.1\,R_\oplus$ for the inner and $2.2\pm 0.1\,R_\oplus$ for the outer planet. The orbital parameters and the planetary masses are determined by the inversion of… Expand

Near mean motion resonance of terrestrial planet pair induced by giant planet: application to Kepler-68 system
In this work, we investigate configuration formation of two inner terrestrial planets near mean motion resonance (MMRs) induced by the perturbation of a distant gas-giant for the Kepler-68 system, byExpand


A Statistical Reconstruction of the Planet Population Around Kepler Solar-Type Stars
Using the cumulative catalog of planets detected by the NASA Kepler mission, we reconstruct the intrinsic occurrence of Earth- to Neptune-size (1 - 4$R_{\oplus}$) planets and their distributions withExpand
A Spectroscopic Analysis of the California-Kepler Survey Sample. I. Stellar Parameters, Planetary Radii, and a Slope in the Radius Gap
We present results from a quantitative spectroscopic analysis conducted on archival Keck/HIRES high-resolution spectra from the California-$Kepler$ Survey (CKS) sample of transiting planetary hostExpand
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
The Kepler mission, combined with ground-based radial velocity (RV) follow-up and dynamical analyses of transit timing variations, has revolutionized the observational constraints onExpand
Masses of Kepler-46b, c from Transit Timing Variations
We use 16 quarters of the \textit{Kepler} mission data to analyze the transit timing variations (TTVs) of the extrasolar planet Kepler-46b (KOI-872). Our dynamical fits confirm that the TTVs of thisExpand

The majority of the transiting planets discovered by the Kepler mission (called super-Earths here, includes the so-called "sub-Neptunes") orbit close to their stars. As such, photoevaporation ofExpand
Masses of the Kepler-419 planets from transit timing variations analysis
We perform dynamical fits to the Transit Timing Variations (TTVs) of Kepler-419b. The TTVs from 17 Kepler quarters are obtained from Holczer et al (2016, ApJS 225,9). The dynamical fits are performedExpand
The Detection and Characterization of a Nontransiting Planet by Transit Timing Variations
A planetary system with two confirmed planets and one candidate planet discovered with the publicly available data for KOI-872, reminiscent of the orderly arrangement within the solar system, with nearly coplanar and circular orbits. Expand
Revised Radii of Kepler Stars and Planets using Gaia Data Release 2
One bottleneck for the exploitation of data from the $Kepler$ mission for stellar astrophysics and exoplanet research has been the lack of precise radii and evolutionary states for most of theExpand
Retired A Stars Revisited: An Updated Giant Planet Occurrence Rate as a Function of Stellar Metallicity and Mass
Exoplanet surveys of evolved stars have provided increasing evidence that the formation of giant planets depends not only on stellar metallicity ([Fe/H]), but also the mass ($M_\star$). However,Expand
