The Kepler space telescope has opened new vistas in exoplanet discovery space by revealing populations of Earth-sized planets that provide a new context for understanding planet formation. Approximately 70% of all stars in the Galaxy belong to the diminutive M dwarf class, several thousand of which lie within Kepler's field of view, and a large number of these targets show planet transit signals. The Kepler M dwarf sample has a characteristic mass of 0.5 M_☉ representing a stellar population… Expand
AN ANCIENT EXTRASOLAR SYSTEM WITH FIVE SUB-EARTH-SIZE PLANETS
The chemical composition of stars hosting small exoplanets (with radii less than four Earth radii) appears to be more diverse than that of gas-giant hosts, which tend to be metal-rich. This impliesExpand
A Nearby M Star with Three Transiting Super-Earths Discovered by K2
Small, cool planets represent the typical end-products of planetary formation. Studying the architectures of these systems, measuring planet masses and radii, and observing these planets’ atmospheresExpand
CHARACTERIZING THE COOL KOIs. VIII. PARAMETERS OF THE PLANETS ORBITING KEPLER’S COOLEST DWARFS
The coolest dwarf stars targeted by the Kepler Mission constitute a relatively small but scientifically valuable subset of the Kepler target stars, and provide a high-fidelity, nearby sample ofExpand
Understanding the assembly of Kepler's compact planetary systems
The Kepler mission has recently discovered a number of exoplanetary systems, such as Kepler-11 and Kepler-32, in which ensembles of several planets are found in very closely packed orbits (oftenExpand
A STELLAR-MASS-DEPENDENT DROP IN PLANET OCCURRENCE RATES
The Kepler spacecraft has discovered a large number of planets with up to one-year periods and down to terrestrial sizes. While the majority of the target stars are main-sequence dwarfs of spectralExpand
The Kepler Dichotomy among the M Dwarfs: Half of Systems Contain Five or More Coplanar Planets
We present a statistical analysis of the Kepler M dwarf planet hosts, with a particular focus on the fractional number of systems hosting multiple transiting planets. We manufacture syntheticExpand
Stellar activity observed by the Kepler Space Telescope. The M dwarf of the Kepler-32 system with five orbiting planets
The activity of the central star of the Kepler-32 planetary system is studied using continuous 1141-day observations with the Kepler Space Telescope. The Kepler-32 system includes a slowly rotatingExpand
A terrestrial planet in a ~1-AU orbit around one member of a ∼15-AU binary
TLDR
Using gravitational microlensing data taken with a worldwide network of telescopes, Gould et al. found a planet twice the mass of Earth that circles just one of a pair of stars. Expand
Using Kepler Candidates to Examine the Properties of Habitable Zone Exoplanets
An analysis of the currently known exoplanets in the habitable zones (HZs) of their host stars is of interest in both the wake of the NASA Kepler mission and with prospects for expanding the knownExpand
SOLAR SYSTEM MOONS AS ANALOGS FOR COMPACT EXOPLANETARY SYSTEMS
The field of exoplanetary science has experienced a recent surge of new systems that is largely due to the precision photometry provided by the Kepler mission. The latest discoveries have includedExpand

Characterizing the Cool KOIs. III. KOI 961: A Small Star with Large Proper Motion and Three Small Planets
We present the characterization of the star KOI 961, an M dwarf with transit signals indicative of three short-period exoplanets, originally discovered by the Kepler Mission. We proceed by comparingExpand
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
One or more bound planets per Milky Way star from microlensing observations
TLDR
It is concluded that stars are orbited by planets as a rule, rather than the exception, and that of stars host Jupiter-mass planets 0.5–10 au (Sun–Earth distance) from their stars. Expand
The Core Accretion Model Predicts Few Jovian-Mass Planets Orbiting Red Dwarfs
The favored theoretical explanation for giant planet formation—in both our solar system and others—is the core accretion model (although it still has some serious difficulties). In this scenario,Expand
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

Transit Timing Observations From Kepler. IV. Confirmation Of Four Multiple-Planet Systems By Simple Physical Models
