Determining habitable zones in binary star systems can be a challenging task due to the combination of perturbed planetary orbits and varying stellar irradiation conditions. The concept of “dynamically informed habitable zones” allows us, nevertheless, to make predictions on where to look for habitable worlds in such complex environments. Dynamically informed habitable zones have been used in the past to investigate the habitability of circumstellar planets in binary systems and Earth-like…

Formation of Earth-sized planets within the Kepler-1647 system habitable zone
The Kepler-1647 is a binary system with two Sun-type stars (≈1.22 and ≈0.97 M ). It has the most massive circumbinary planet (≈1.52 MJup) with the longest orbital period (≈ 1,107.6 days) detected by

WHERE TO FIND HABITABLE “EARTHS” IN CIRCUMBINARY SYSTEMS
Six P-type planets have been found thus far around five binary systems, i.e., Kepler-16b, 34b, 35b, 38b, and 47b and c, which are all Neptune- or Jupiter-like planets. The stability of planets and
Habitable Zones in Binary Star Systems: A Zoology
Several concepts have been brought forward to determine where terrestrial planets are likely to remain habitable in multi-stellar environments. Isophote-based habitable zones, for instance, rely on
On the Habitable Zones of Circumbinary Planetary Systems
The effect of the stellar flux on exoplanetary systems is becoming an increasingly important property as more planets are discovered in the habitable zone (HZ). The Kepler mission has recently
Transiting circumbinary planets Kepler-34 b and Kepler-35 b
TLDR
The observed rate of circumbinary planets in this sample implies that more than ∼1% of close binary stars have giant planets in nearly coplanar orbits, yielding a Galactic population of at least several million.
Habitable zones with stable orbits for planets around binary systems
A general formulation to compute habitable zones (HZ) around binary stars is presented. A HZ in this context must satisfy two separate conditions: a radiative one and one of dynamical stability. For
Habitability of Earth-mass Planets and Moons in the Kepler-16 System
We demonstrate that habitable Earth-mass planets and moons can exist in the Kepler-16 system, known to host a Saturn-mass planet around a stellar binary, by investigating their orbital stability in
Assessing circumbinary habitable zones using latitudinal energy balance modelling
Previous attempts to describe circumbinary habitable zones have been concerned with the spatial extent of the zone, calculated analytically accord ing to the combined radiation field of both stars.
An Analytic Method to determine Habitable Zones for S-Type Planetary Orbits in Binary Star Systems
With more and more extrasolar planets discovered in and around binary star systems, questions concerning the determination of the classical habitable zone have arisen. Do the radiative and
KEPLER-1647B: THE LARGEST AND LONGEST-PERIOD KEPLER TRANSITING CIRCUMBINARY PLANET
We report the discovery of a new Kepler transiting circumbinary planet (CBP). This latest addition to the still-small family of CBPs defies the current trend of known short-period planets orbiting
CALCULATING THE HABITABLE ZONE OF BINARY STAR SYSTEMS. II. P-TYPE BINARIES
We have developed a comprehensive methodology for calculating the circumbinary habitable zone (HZ) in planet-hosting P-type binary star systems. We present a general formalism for determining the
