Characterizing Long-Period Transiting Planets Observed by Kepler

Abstract

Kepler will monitor a sufficient number of stars that it is likely to detect single transits of planets with periods longer than the mission lifetime. We show that by combining the exquisite Kepler photometry of such transits with precise radial velocity observations taken over a reasonable timescale (∼ 6 months) after the transits, and assuming circular… (More)
