The Kepler-186 system consists of ve planets orbiting an early M dwarf. The planets have physical radii of 1.0{1.50 R and orbital periods of 4{130 days. The 1:1R Kepler-186f with a period of 130 days is of particular interest. Its insolation of roughly 0:32 S places it within the surface liquid water habitable zone (HZ). We present a multifaceted study of the Kepler-186 system, using two sets of parameters which are consistent with the data and also self-consistent. First, we show that the… Expand
Obliquity Variations of Habitable Zone Planets Kepler-62f and Kepler-186f
Obliquity variability could play an important role in the climate and habitability of a planet. Orbital modulations caused by planetary companions and the planet's spin axis precession due to theExpand
Mercury-T: A new code to study tidally evolving multi-planet systems. Applications to Kepler-62
A large proportion of observed planetary systems contain several planets in a compact orbital configuration, and often harbor at least one close-in object. These systems are then most likely tidallyExpand
Tidal response of rocky and ice-rich exoplanets
The amount of detected planets with sizes comparable to that of the Earth is increasing drastically. Most of the Earth-size planet candidates orbit at close distances from their central star, andExpand
The Impact of Stellar Distances on Habitable Zone Planets
Among the most highly valued of exoplanetary discoveries are those of terrestrial planets found to reside within the habitable zone (HZ) of the host star. In particular, those HZ planets withExpand
Obliquity and Eccentricity Constraints For Terrestrial Exoplanets
Exoplanet discoveries over recent years have shown that terrestrial planets are exceptionally common. Many of these planets are in compact systems that result in complex orbital dynamics. A key stepExpand
Tidal evolution in multiple planet systems: application to Kepler-62 and Kepler-186
Abstract A large number of observed exoplanets are part of multiple planet systems. Most of these systems are sufficiently close-in to be tidally evolving. In such systems, there is a competitionExpand
Seven temperate terrestrial planets around the nearby ultracool dwarf star TRAPPIST-1
TLDR
The observations reveal that at least seven planets with sizes and masses similar to those of Earth revolve around TRAPPIST-1, and the six inner planets form a near-resonant chain, such that their orbital periods are near-ratios of small integers. Expand
Tidal dissipation in stars and fluid planetary layers and its impact on the evolution of star-planet systems
Tidal dissipation in stars and planets is one of the key physical mechanisms that drive the evolution of planetary systems. It intrinsically depends on the nature of the tidal response of celestialExpand
A Catalog of Kepler Habitable Zone Exoplanet Candidates
The NASA Kepler mission has discovered thousands of new planetary candidates, many of which have been confirmed through follow-up observations. A primary goal of the mission is to determine theExpand
The origins of nearly coplanar, non-resonant systems of close-in super-Earths
Some systems of close-in "super-Earths" contain five or more planets on non-resonant but compact and nearly coplanar orbits. The Kepler-11 system is an iconic representative of this class of system.Expand

Determination of the Interior Structure of Transiting Planets in Multiple-Planet Systems

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. Expand

TLDR
The Kepler mission detected a five-planet system where all the planets are smaller than twice the size of Earth and where the two outermost planets orbit in the habitable zone of their star, defined as the region where a rocky planet can host liquid water on its solid surface. Expand
FORMATION OF TERRESTRIAL PLANETS FROM PROTOPLANETS. I. STATISTICS OF BASIC DYNAMICAL PROPERTIES
